In presenting to the public the Oakland Directory for 1874, the second vol- 
ume of the work issued by the present compiler, he respectfully directs atten- 
tion to the useful and interesting character o'f the different subjects embraced 
within its pages. The historical and statistical references comprise a mass of 
valuable information connected with the history of Oakland, including a state- 
ment of building improvements, and a review of the manufacturing enter- 
prises since July, 1872. The articles on Land Titles, Population, and Fi- 
nances are worthy of special attention. Tlic Appendix contains the Charter 
of the City of Oakland, the Acts of the Legislature establishing the Board of 
Education and the Police Court, opening and improving the Public Streets, 
etc.; and the ordinances of the city with reference to Licences, Public Health, 
Nuisances, and City Wharf, with the different amendments to date, to which 
have been added abstracts of several important legal decisions affecting the 
same : the whole presenting a department of information concerning the laws 
of the City of Oakland, not to be found in any other publication. The Ala- 
meda division of the work contains, in addition to a list of residents, the 
Town Charter and a list of the officers of the local government ; the officers 
of the different societies, churches, etc., and a variety of other interesting data 
of a local character. 

The number of references contained in the Oakland Department of the 
present volume is 5,369, of which 4,561 are adult males. These figures, com- 
pared with those published in the Directory issued in August, 1872, 4,004 
(Oakland 3,350, Brooklyn 654), exhibit an increase of 557, or about fourteen 
per cent. Population, January 1, 1874, estimated at 16,500. The number of 
references in the Alameda Directory is 358, of which 291 are adult males. 
The population of Alameda Township is estimated at about 2,000. Thorough 
and reliable statistics on these subjects will be found on page 26. 

It was intended to include in the present volume, a map of the City of 
Oakland, but owing to the rapid growth of the city and the extension of its 
limits during the last year and the numerous changes incident thereto, it has 
been deemed advisable to omit the old map as being insufficient for present 
reference. A new map is now being compiled by official authority which 
will be published in the Directory for 1875. 

The new system of numbering the buildings adopted during the past year, 
has greatly facilitated the labors of our canvassers, and will, when thoroughly 
carried into effect, prove a measure of great public convenience. 

The compiler tenders his acknowledgments for the favors extended during 
the progress of his labors, to "William D. Harwood, Esq., for valuable and 
interesting contributions to the Historical and General Keview; to Dr. G. E. 
Sherman, for valuable mortuary statistics ; and to the different officers of the 
City Government, especially to H. Hillebrand, Esq., City Clerk; to Captain 
F. B, Tarbett, and to Edward Hoskins, Esq., he is under obligations for val- 
uable information: also, to the citizens of Oakland, for their uniform cour- 
tesy; and to the patrons of the work, for their substantial evidences of sym- 
pathy and good will.

HISTORICAL AND GENERAL REVIEW. 



DECEMBEK 1st, 1873. 




Natural Advantages of Oakland, and her Progress. 

The earlier residents of Oak- 
land were induced to become 
dwellers here because the cli- 
mate was superior to that on 
the western side of the Bay, 
and because the surroundings 
were in every way more beau- 
tiful and attractive. These are 
the gi-eat natural advantages 
operating in favor of Oakland, 
and from their character they 
must be perpetual. Oakland is' 
a city of residences. The vast 
majority of her people are inter- 
ested in business at the metrop- 
olis, but every part of California is represented in her popula- 
tion. The establishment of the State University and the devel- 
opment of a perfect system of public schools in the city are 
next in importance to the natural advantage of climate and 
healthfulness. 

This educational system is such that a child six years of age 
can enter at one of the primary schools and pass through the 
successive classes until fully qualified to enter the State Univer- 
sity. The University itself is upon the borders of the city. Thus 
parents can obtain for their sons and daughters educational facili- 
ties now equal to any in the United States. The extensive knowl- 
edge of this fact tends to hasten the influx of population. The 
people of the city have done much to increase its attractions and 
are now putting forward well-directed efforts to give to the 
place a commercial importance of its own. The half-million 
dollars expended in street improvements have given miles of 
splendid driveways. The liberal spirit of the people in maintain-

ing a system of public schools, the best in the State, has been 
well rewarded. Large tracts of land have been rendered acces- 
sible by street railroads. A cheap and well-appointed ferry be- 
tween Oakland and San Francisco has grown up as a natural re- 
sult, and we now have accommodations that are somewhat in ad- 
vance of the present demands of the city. There is half -hourly 
communication during the busier parts of the day, and hourly 
communication during the time when travel is lightest. The 
Central Pacific Railroad Company has done well with the people 
of Oakland. Its jDolicy has been to accelerate the growth of the 
city and increase its prosperity. As the favorite place for resi- 
dences, the position of Oakland was long since assured. 

More than twenty years ago, there were people in Oakland 
who had deliberately formed the opinion that whenever 
the transcontinental railroad should be built, its western ter- 
minus would be in this city, and that the place would become 
one of great commercial importance . This idea has been con- 
tinuously cherished, and the hopes of the most earnest friends of 
Oakland are likely to be realized. The terminus of the over- 
land railway is fixed here. The pier extending to Groat Island 
is a perishable structure, that can be used only three or four 
years more, and attention has for some time been given to prep- 
arations for a change of business to this mainland. The im- 
provement of the San Antonio Creek, as a harbor for the largest 
sea-going vessels, is sure to be made. The change that will take 
place upon the completion of that work must inevitably be great 
and important, and it must result in transfemng to the east side 
of the Bay a veiy large amount of commerce, that will build up 
many branches of business now unknown here, and in a measure 
alter the character of the city and render it to a greater extent 
self-sustaining. While Nature has dealt very liberally with Oak- 
land, the people have not been inactive. They have evinced a 
detennination to do for themselves everything that is possible. 
A partial improvement of the harbor is now in progress, and it is 
expected that this will soon be followed with work ordered by 
the Federal Grovernment. 

The more prominent events of the year are the annexation of 
Brooklyn and the removal of the county seat from San Leandro 
to a point in East Oakland, somewhat more ascessible. Brook- 
lyn has always been virtually a part of Oakland, advancing as it 
advanced, and suffering fi'om any causes that tended to retard 
the progress of Oakland. The contemplated harbor improvement 
will be of incalculable benefit to that part of the city, doing for 
it, comparatively, more than for the Oakland peninsula. It is 
the site of some of the more important manufacturing establish- 
ments now in operation. In annexing themselves to Oakland, 
the people of Brooklyn acted with prudence and forethought. 
The removal of the county seat from San Leandro has been of 
material convenience to the public, saving much time and trouble 
and rendering unnecessary a journey of nine miles in order to 
reach the seat of justice of the county.

NATURAL ADVANTAGES OP OAKLAND. 11 

The citj' assessment rolls, from the fiscal year 1863-4 to date, 
have been as follows : 

Year. Amount of Assessment. 

18G3- 4 $ 794,121 

18G4- 5 970,125 

1865- 6 1,107,949 

1866- 7 1,434,800 

1867- 8 1,832,428 

1868- 9 3,363,478 

1869-70 4,256,702 

1870- 1 4,563,737 

1871- 2 5,215,704 

1872- 3 6,647,039 

1873- 4 18,539,303 

Until the present year the assessment has been announced to 
have been at one-third of the actual value of the property ; but 
the custom has been changed, and property is now cited for 
what is deemed its market value. There has been a correspond- 
ing reduction in the rate of taxation — which is seventy cents on 
the one hundred dollars. 

The city wharf was completed in August, 1872, and its first 
year's business amounted to $3,283.67. Charges had been fixed 
so as to produce revenue enough to pay the interest on its cost 
and running expenses. It has done little more than this during 
the first year, and the amount of business has so greatly in- 
creased that at the end of the second year there will be a con- 
siderable sinking fund to redeem some of the bonds issued to 
raise funds for its construction. The freight landed on this 
wharf during the year amounted to 20,634 tons. The wharf is 
now used to very nearly its full capacity, and if the city owned 
the site for another, it would be justified in building a second 
one. 

The erection of the Grand Central Hotel is an event of much 
local importance. In SLze and elegance it is not inferior to any 
hotel on the Pacific Coast, and visitors from difierent parts of 
the State, and from the East, will be sure to entertain a more 
favorable opinion of Oakland on account of this enterprise. 

The Oakland Street Railroad Company has extended its track 
from Temascal to Berkeley, and a branch has been constructed 
from the main line, at the junction of Broadway and Fourteenth 
Street, along San Pablo Avenue, for a distance of two miles. 
The business of these roads has kept somewhat in advance of the 
general growth of the city, so large a proportion of the newly 
erected dwelling-houses being is the suburbs. 

The Oakland Gaslight Company has increased the capacity of 
its works by erecting a holder which will contain ninety thou- 
sand cubic feet of gas, and by enlarging its works in other re- 
spects, in order to meet the increased demands made upon 
them. 

The Contra Costa Water Company has lately commenced the

building of a dam on the San Leandro Creek, at a point about 
eight miles from the central part of Oakland. Yery extensive 

' purchases of real estate and water rights have been made, and 
when the work now in progress is completed, there will be an 
artificial lake covering 12,000 acres of land, and having an aver- 
age depth of 100 feet. From the bar of the new dam to the 
company's pipes in East Oakland the distance is but six miles. 
The lake will have a capacity of forty thousand million gallons of 
water, and the stream flowing into it and the adjacent water- 
sheds will enable the company to furnish one hundred million 

^ gallons daily. If these estimates by the company be correct, 
Oakland has within reach, at the lowest cost, a water supj^ly 
that will be ample for all time. 



Land Titles. 

ABSTBACT OF THE ORIGIN OF THE TITLE TO THE LAND ON WHICH THE 
CITY OF OAKLAND IS SITUATED. 

During the first few years after the settlement of the city, it 
was the popular belief that the " Squatter Title " was valid, and 
most of the property was purchased from those who had origi- 
nally taken possession. After the amount of litigation that is usu- 
ally required to establish the legality of a Mexican grant, the 
Peralta title obtained recognition, and has withstood every at- 
tack subsequently made upon it. "We append the outlines of an 
abstract of title to any city lot: 

1. Grrant from the Mexican Government to Luis Maria Pe- 
ralta, of the " Eancho San Antonio," embracing the lands upon 
which the City of Oakland is located. Dated October 18th, 1822. 

2. In 1842, Luis Maria Peralta made a division of the Eancho 
San Antonio among his four sons, Ignacio, Antonio, Domingo, 
and Vinoente, and put them in possession of their respective 
portions. Vincente Peralta received that portion on which the 
City of Oakland is situated. 

3. In 1851, Luis Maria Peralta executed an instrument pur- 
porting to be a will, wherein he ratified and confirmed the divis- 
ion of the Rancho San Antonio among his four sons, which in- 
strument, the Supreme Court of California says, estops the heirs 
of Luis Maria Peralta from denying said gift to his sons. [See 
17 Cal. Reps., Adams v. Lansing.] The invalidity of title derived 
from the other heirs than the sons of Luis Maria Peralta is also 
declared by the United States Supreme Court, in a case growing 
out of the " Pretermitted Heir" title, decided in the early part 
of this year (1872) and not yet reported. 

4. In 1854, the Board of Land Commissioners confirmed the 
northern portion of the Eancho, embracing the City of Oakland, 
to Vincente and Domingo Peralta ; and the same was afterwards, 
in 1855, confirmed by the United States District Court, and still 
later, at the December term in 1856, by the Supreme Court of 
the United Statee. (See 17 Howard.)

6. Vincente Peralta to John Clar, (1-6); B. De La Barra, 
(1-12); Jos. K. Irving, (i); Jacob A. Cost, (i); John C. Hayes 
and John Caperton, (i). Deed dated March 13th, 1852. Re-

date situated. 

7. John Clar to J. K. Irving, deed of his interest, February 
7th, 1852. Recorded in Contra Costa County.

Hayes, Caperton, and heirs of Cost, deceased. 

9. J. K. Irving, party of the first ; John C. Hayes and John 
Caperton, parties of the second j^art ; Anna R. Poole, Catherine 
S. Lyons and her husband, Joseph Lyons ; Serena S. Young, 
and her husband, Alexander H. Young (heirs of Cost, deceased), 
" by William Poole, their attorney," execute a partition deed, 
duly proven, certified to and recorded in Alameda County. 

10. Power of attorney from Anna R. Poole et ah, heirs of 
Cost, to Wm. J. Poole, June 14th, 1853. 

11. Power of attorney to Montgomery Blair, from same par- 
ties (except, Serena S. Young, who was deceased, and left minor 
heii's, for whom Alexander H. Young signed as guardian), Feb. 
2d, 1854. 

12. Proceedings in Probate Court in the same year, by which 
interest the minor heirs of Serena S. Young became vested in 
Alex. H. Young. 

13. Another partition deed to correct errors in description of 
lands not blocked off in former deed, reciting and approving the 
former ; the same in all other respects, between the same par- 
ties (except in place of Serena S. Young, deceased, was Alexan- 
der H. Young, " by M. Blair, their attorney in fact"). Dated 
May 1, 1854. 

14. Deed from Anna R. Poole to John C. Hayes, ratifying and 
confirming the former deed of partition, and confirming the acts 
of Blair and Black as agents, Sept. 1st, 1858. 

15. Similar deed to Haves et at. from Jos, Lvons and wife, 
November 10th, 1858. 

16. Similar deed to Hayes et al. from Alexander H, Young, 
March 27th, 1860. 

Subsequent to the chain of conveyances traced, the title is 
vested in numerous owners, there being no other general claims. 
All the technicalities and defects which ingenuity can discover 
have been brought to notice. The numerous adverse titles had 
for years hung over property-holders like an incubus, and in the 
early part of the year 1869 the people began an organized move- 
ment to defeat them. The position of affaii-s was somewhat

14 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

critical. The city was rapiflly growing, and to allow the idea to 
go abroad that titles were insecure would check the progress of 
the city and cause incalulable mischief. Sound business policy 
overcame the desire to make a bitter fight, however, and the 
holders of the claims were induced to dispose of them at rates 
that were trivial. The specific claims were the Pretermitted Heirs' 
title, the Sisters' title, the Irving title, and the Cost title, and 
these comprised all general titles asserted by anybody to land 
within the City of Oakland. These titles were, by their several 
owners, conveyed to Henry Hillebrand, the City Clerk, who acted 
as a Tnistee, and by him conveyance was made to the several 
j)roperty-holders. Nearly all the land in the city is now held by a 
perfect title, the Hillebrand deed removing all the clouds. These 
titles, except the Cost title, still cloud property outside of the 
old charter line. The principal ones, the Sisters and the Preter- 
mitted Heirs, are virtually defeated, and the property-holders, to 
save trouble and annoyance, have quite generally purchased the 
other claims. 

The Kate Hayes Title covers that portion of Oakland township 
outside of the " Encinal Line," as laid down on our map. The 
Supreme Court of the State has sustained a decision rendered by 
E. W. McKinstry, Judge of the Twelfth District Court, grant- 
ing a new trial on the motion made by the defendants (the prop- 
erty-holders). That decision was fatal to the claim, which, in 
itself, was but for a trifling interest. A new trial has not yet 
been had, and the result is regarded as a foregone conclusion, 
the law of the case having been decided beyond appeal. 

Water and Gas. 

About one-third of the population of Oakland use water ob- 
tained from the Contra Costa Water Company, and the remain- 
der procure it from wells. By digging to a depth of twenty feet 
a sujDply of pure fresh water can be obtained ; but on account of 
the increased size of the city, and the prevalent fear that well 
water is becoming contaminated with sewage, many persons 
are abandoning their wells and using the water that is obtained 
from the mountain streams. The Contra Costa Water Company 
commenced operations in the latter part of the year 1866, and 
since that time about fifty miles of pipe have been laid. Water 
is obtained from the Temascal Creek. At its eastern branch, 
five miles from Oakland, a canon has been dammed, and an 
artificial lake, six hundred feet wide and three-quarters of a mile 
long, has been created. The water is seventy feet deep in win- 
ter, and the capacity of the reservoir is two hundred million gal- 
lons. The daily consumption of water varies from half a mil- 
lion to a million of gallons per day, according to the extent to 
which people may irrigate theii- gardens. The company has also 
appropriated the water of the Fruit Vale Creek and built a res- 
ervoir there, with a capacity of one million gallons. In case 
the mountain streams run low, use is made of artesian wells in

Brooklyn, the water from which is forced by steam power into 
the mains. 

In view of a constantly increasing population and a rapid 
growth of permanent improvement, with a consequent increased 
demand, many have expressed a fear that the water supply 
would fail entirely, in the event of a dry season, and leave the 
city, in the more densely populated localities, where the well- 
water is not fit for use, on account of contamination by drainage, 
without water, and the whole at the mercy of the flames. Such 
a fear, it will be seen, is unfounded, for the company, in order 
to meet the increased demand, has acquired, by purchase, the 
water rights of San Leandro Creek to the upper end of the ca- 
fion, two miles above San Leandro. At that point a suitable 
dam is being erected, so as to form a lake of the valley above, 
which will contain, when completed, forty thousand million gal- 
tons of water, equal to a daily supply of one hundred million 
gallons, a quantity sufficient for the supply of a population of 
one million. 

The location of this dam is about eight miles from Oakland, 
and it wJl be so far completed as to bring in the water for use 
in 1874, with an average pressure in the city of Oakland of two 
hundred feet. 

The completion of this enterprise will give Oakland a first-class 
water supply, equal to the best in the United States. 

The purity of the water supplied by the Contra Costa "Water 
Company has lately been tested by the State Assayer, who certi- 
fies as follows : "I consider the water analyzed to be of excel- 
lent quality, and well adapted to domestic use." 

The city is furnished illuminating gas by the Oakland Gas- 
light Company, which commenced operations January 1st, 1867. 
The city entered into a ten-year contract in 1868, to light the 
streets. The company receives 19 cents per night for each lamp. 
The annual amount of the bills for lighting the streets in the 
city is $15,000. The company has laid about eighteen miles of 
mains. The works are located on the corner of Washington and 
First streets, and have a capacity of two hundred thousand cubic 
feet per day. The price charged to consumers is fom* dollars 
and fifty cents per thousand cubic feet. 

The Railroad System. 

It is broadly asserted that Oakland is the center of the railroad 
system of the Pacific Coast, and a mere glance at any railroad 
map shows that such is the case. The several lines of railroad 
in operation in California are either owned or controlled by the 
Central Pacific Railroad Company, and they all concentrate in 
this city. Words cannot convey this idea as forcibly as any 
railroad map and an accompanying table of distances. Not only 
the railroads now in existence, but those projected and likely to 
be completed within the next few years, converge to the same 
point. As San Francisco now is, and ever must be, the metrop-

olis of the Pacific Coast, the managers of railroads are compelled 
to locate their terminal improvements in Oakland, because they 
further their own interests by so doing. The Central Pacific 
Railroad Company owns seveilty acres of land at the Oakland 
Point, used as a site for round-houses and work-shops. A plan- 
ing-mill has been in operation upwards of one year, and in it is 
prepared all the timber used in the constructioii and repair of 
bridges on the line of the road. At the present time over 7,000,- 
000 feet of lumber and the materials for the construction of a 
large and commodious freight-boat, are on hand. The city has 
refrained from any attempt to open streets through this tract of 
land, at the request of the Company, upon representing that this 
ground is required for the purposes we have named, and in cut- 
ting it up by numerous streets its usefulness would be so im- 
paired that it would be necessary for the Company to seek for 
accommodations elsewhere. The Company also owns an area of 
three hundred and fifty acres on the water front, extending from 
the former tract toward Goat Island, with a frontage of nearly 
half a mile on ship channel. The Comi^any has recently made 
extensive purchases of real estate near the head of the San An- 
tonio Creek, and it owns a large tract of hilly land a few miles 
south from Brooklyn, from which can be obtained an ahnost un- 
limited supply of earth for filling in and reclaiming marsh and 
tide lands. The wharf projecting from the Oakland Point is 
eleven thousand feet in length, and at the end of it there are 
twenty-six and one half feet of water at low tide, and thirty- 
three and one half feet of water at high tide, upon which have 
been erected extensive depots, raikoad offices, warehouses, and 
ample facilities for the storage of grain, etc. The structure is built 
in the most firm and enduring manner, and nothing has been 
omitted that engineering and mechanical skill could suggest. 
The overland trains and the accommodation trains for San Jose, 
Sacramento, Stockton, and Marysville are run over the track laid 
through First Street, and the local trains are run over the Sev- 
enth Street track. Communication between San Francisco and 
Alameda is now maintained by a branch line of the Oakland 
road, which was completed on the first of October last. Its dis- 
tance is about four miles, extending from Harrison and Seventh 
streets and crossing San Antonio Creek by a substantial bridge 
seven hundred and eighty-six feet in length, with a draw of two 
openings of eighty feet each. Ten trips are made daily. The 
Oakland Ferry service has been much improved by the discon- 
tinuance of the old route to Alameda. Twenty-five trips each 
way are now made daily, and, during business hours, one is 
made every thirty minutes. At Broadway and Brooklyn Stations, 
commodious accommodations have been provided for passen- 
gers, and at the latter a round-house for locomotives has been 
recently erected. 

At the Central Pacific Railroad Company's Wharf, from June 
30th, 1872, to June 30th, 1873, one hundred and ten vessels 
have received their cargoes of grain, aggregating 161,134 tons.

DRIVES AND PLEASURE RESORTS. 17 

The street railroad system of Oakland is very comprehensive, 
all of the streets of present or prospective importance beinj^ 
covered by a franchise; but there are only two companies that 
have expended any money or shown any signs of vitality. The 
Oakland Kailroad Company's franchise covers Bi-oadway from 
the water front to the charter line, and thence by the most direct 
route to Berkeley. The road is built and provided with rolling 
stock. It is five and one half miles long. Thirteen one-horse 
cars run regularly, and, when occasion requires, six two-horse 
cars and six flats are added. Fifty-one horses are kept in the 
comijany's stable at Temescal. The San Pablo Avenue branch 
of the Oakland Eailroad Company extends to a point near the 
Oakland Trotting Park, a distance of two miles. Three cars 
run regularly every fifteen minutes during the day. 

The Oakland, Brooklyn, and Fruit Vale Railroad is completed 
from the crossing of Broadway and Seventh streets, in Oakland, 
to the central portion of the town of Brooklyn, a distance of two 
miles, and the business transacted is about sufficient to pay cur- 
rent expenses and interest on the investment. It is contemplat- 
ed to extend this road to the County Court House, a distance of 
several blocks from its present terminus. Trips are made every 
half hour. 

Some progress has been made in the construction of the Ala- 
meda and Piedmont Springs Eailroad. The track has been laid 
a short distance from Alameda. 

The street railroads projected promise to be remunerative en- 
terprises. The benefit of such imjDrovements is very great, a pop- 
ulation of several hundred persons having been drawn to the 
%dcinity of Temescal through the influence of the Oakland Rail- 
road. As communication between diiferent parts of the city is 
made convenient and cheap, its growth will be accelerated, and 
the value of real estate, in every locality, will be enhanced. 

Rides, Drives, and Pleasure Resorts. 

The smooth macadamized streets within the limits of the city 
afford many miles of pleasant driving, and if there were no other 
resort, Oakland would be unusually attractive. There is a net- 
work of well-made roads through the Oakland Valley centeiing 
at Berkeley. The Telegraph and San Pablo avenues are the 
great drive-ways to the north of the city, and from them radiate 
numerous roads that lead into the hills. A fashionable and beau- 
tiful drive is that leading to Piedmont Springs, five miles from 
Oakland. From the Piedmont Springs Hotel, which offers every 
attraction for the comfort and enjoyment of its patrons, " per- 
haps the finest and most complete view of the Bay and its sur- 
roundings is obtained, while the " Bushy Dell " hard by, a ravine 
filled with a luxuriant growth of shrubbery and trees, is a most 
delightful and romantic spot, "svith excellent made walks mn- 
ning through it. In this dell the Sulphur Springs are situated, 
the waters of which are strongly impregnated with sulphur, mag-

nesia, and iron. They have medicinal properties of great value. 
No place of resort can be more favorably recommended to the 
notice of our Eastern visitors^ while the city man out of health 
will find them veiy conveniently situated." From Piedmont 
there are good roads running through the mountains, and there 
is a labyrinth of pleasant drives. The mountain scenery is very 
fine, and it is difficult to realize that so great a change can be 
found in a half -hour's ride from Oakland. 

The drive-way on the eastei-n bank of Lake Merritt is also a 
fashionable resort. The system of roads in East Oakland is quite 
complete, and the visitor can follow any road that he may observe 
without danger of being led into an unpleasant or dangerous lo- 
cality. The most important place of pubhc resort, especially on 
Sundays, is Badger's Central Park, East Oakland, where there 
are highly ornamented grounds, a large pavilion for dancing, 
and all of the attractions ordinarily found at j)ublic gardens. 
That the excellent roads in and around Oakland are appreciated 
by visitors is attested by the fact that Oakland has six large liv- 
ery stables, all of them doing a prosjDcrous business. 

BuiTding Improvements. 

The number of buildings erected in Oakland during the period 
July 1, 1872, to December 1, 1873, will bear a favorable compari- 
son with that of previous years. East and West Oakland pre- 
sent very gratifying evidences of prosperity. One firm of con- 
tractors alone, Messrs. Power &, Ough, estimate the amount of 
their engagements for the time refen-ed to at $500,000, included 
in which is the Orand Central Hotel, one of the most elegant 
and costly buildings in the city. It is a block in length, from 
Webster to Harrison streets, four stories high, and is covered 
with a Mansard roof, the only deviation from its prevailing style 
of Italian architecture. Three large towers embellish the struct- 
ure, one at the center of the roof and one at each end. In each 
tower there is a tank, always kept full, containing 5,000 gallons 
of water. There are three front entrances, the main one in the 
center of the hotel, and the right and left half-way between the 
main entrance and the ends of the building. A porch extends 
from each entrance to the edge of the sidewalk, so that the 
guests may stej) from their carriages to the sidewalk, completely 
sheltered from the rain or the hot sun. The vestibule at the 
main entrance has a tesselated flooring of artificial marble. The 
ceiling rises eighteen feet in the clear. Laurel, oak, and walnut 
are represented in the graining, which has been executed with 
considerable care. Passing through a pair of swinging glass 
doors, the visitor enters the office at the right-hand side, whence 
he may ascend to the upper floor by the elevator. The reading- 
room and telegraph office are on the left-hand side of the vesti- 
bule, and can be reached directly from the street without passing 
through the hall. 

Two flights of stairs from the street, one from the main hall and

one from the rear, communicate with the upper floors of the build- 
ing. There are two main parlors on the second floor, with fine, 
large windows facing the street. A wide hall runs through the 
center of the building on all the floors. On this floor, on the 
other side of the hall, are the dining and breakfast saloons, con- 
nected with the hall by sliding doors. The sleeping rooms con- 
nected with the private parlors are so arranged as to be used 
either singly or in suites. The third floor contains suites and 
single rooms furnished in very good taste. 

r The building is about three hundred feet long, and from sev- 
enty to one hundred feet in depth. The rooms are all of good 
\ size, and well lighted and ventilated. The sleeping rooms are 
twelve and a half by fourteen feet; the private parlors are thir- 
teen and a half by eighteen; the dining hall is twenty by one 
hundred feet, and the breakfast hall twenty-six by forty-eight. 
The tanks are connected with hydrants, from which hose extends 
to every part of the building. 

The design of the building was planned by one of the owners, 
Dr. Samuel Merritt. The other proprietor is Captain P. S. Wilcox, 
. of Oakland. The value of the building and the ground on which 
it stands is estimated at $200,000. 

Convent of the Sacred Heart. — The new building, although 
called an addition to the old convent, contains nearly four times 
the accommodations of the latter. Its dimensions are one hun- 
dred and seven feet, by a depth of seventy-two feet. The build- 
ing is four stories, exclusive of a lofty attic. The basement, which 
is almost wholly above ground, contains a large gymnasium, 
measuring sixty by twenty-two feet, refectories, kitchen, and 
store-rooms. The j^rincipal floor is occupied by the parlors, 
museum, library, and large music hall. The story above is de- 
voted to class-rooms and study-halls, and the upjDer floor is 
divided into dormitories and dressing-rooms. The building is 
heated by steam, and provided liberally with bath-rooms and all 
modern conveniences. From one hundred and fifty to two hun- 
dred pupils can be accommodated with ease, and that number 
will, in all probability, be made up before the close of the 
year. 

The exterior of the building is somewhat Italian in its archi- 
tecture. The floor lines are marked by ornamental string courses, 
and windows of an ornamental character, grouped together at 
the end and central projections, which relieve the front. The 
entire is surmounted by a bell-tower, consisting of two stories, 
and rising to a total height of nearly one hundred and ten feet to 
the top of the cross. The lower story is square, and decorated with 
Doric pilasters and a boldly projecting cornice. The upper 
story consists of an octagonal dome, supported by Corinthian 
columns, and surmounted by a ball and cross. The view from 
this observatory is magnificent, commanding the bay, the Golden 
Gate, Lake Merritt, and a wide stretch of the best cultivated and 
richest lands of Alameda. Indeed, it would be hard to find a 
finer site for an academy than that occupied by the Sisters, and

they have shown by their new edifice that its merits are not un- 
appreciated by the Californian public. Bryan J. Clinch is the 
architect. 

New County Buildings. — The County Court House is located 
on the north-west corner of East Fourteenth Street and Twen- 
tieth Avenue. This building is constructed of wood ; two stories 
in height ; fifty-two feet front, by eighty feet deep ; cost, $8,000. 
The Hall of Eecords, located near the Court House, on Twen- 
tieth Avenue, is a one-story brick, fire-proof building, fifty feet 
front and sixty feet deep ; cost, $7,000 . The County Jail build- 
ings, on the south-west corner of East Fifteenth Street and 
Twenty-first Avenue, are constructed of stone, brick, and iron. 
The center building is three stories, forty by sixty feet, and will 
be used as the jailor's room, kitchen, and laundry. The jail- 
wing is two stories ; forty by sixty feet, and contains forty cells. 
The plan of the buildings provides for an additional wing of two 
stories, forty by sixty feet, and to contain twenty-six cells. 
Total cost, $50,000. 

The Real Estate Associates have recently erected, on Eighth 
Street, near Broadway, a two-story brick and stone building, 
seventy-five feet front ; the first floor being used for stores and 
the second for offices and lodging rooms. Cost, $20,000. 

Alfred Bartlett has erected, on Seventh Street, between Broad- 
way and Washington, a three-story budding, brick and Frear 
stone front, fifty by seventy-five feet, with stores on the ground 
floor, the upper part being known as the Bartlett House. Cost, 
about $25,000. 

L. Gr. Cole's residence on Webster Street, opposite the Con- 
vent, is three stories in height, costing about $27,000. 

J. Dickson's new residence, corner of Filbert and West Tenth 
streets, is three stories in height. Cost, $18,000. 

James Marshall's residence, on Webster Street, near Seven- 
teenth, is two stories in height, having a frontage of forty-two 
feet. Cost, $5,000. 

Mrs. Caldwell's residence, on East Twelfth Street, is a two- 
story building, thirty-four feet front, costing $6,000. 

The City Market, on Twelfth Street between Broadway and 
Franklin, is a large and commodious one-story building, about 
sixty by two hundred feet, and is admirably adapted to the pur- 
poses for which it was constructed. It was completed and occu- 
pied in September, 1872. 

Joseph Becht has recently erected, on Eleventh Street, near 
Broadway, a substantial brick store, fifty by seventy feet, one 
story in height ; cost, $5,500. The same enterprising gentleman 
has renovated and added extensive improvements to the building 
known as Pythian Hall, 1058 Broadway. The upper story will 
be occupied by the Knights of Pythias and other secret organi- 
zations of Oakland. 

William Sohst has recently completed a substantial two-story 
frame building on the north-east corner of Eighth and Franklin 
streets. This building is fifty by seventy-five feet, and is de-

Captain Samuel James has just finished an extensive frame 
building on the north-west corner of Railroad Avenue and Wood 
Street, Oakland Point, known as James' Block. This building 
is about one hundred feet front by forty feet deep. The lower* 
portion is occupied by stores and the second story is known as 
the Grand Western Hotel. Cost, about $15,000. 

Col. John Scott has lately ei'ected a fine residence on the cor- 
ner of West Eighth and Poplar streets. 

Sheriff H. N. Morse has in the course of construction an ele- 
gant and conveniently arranged residence on the Watson Tract, 
near Lake Merritt. It is two stories in height, with a frontage of 
forty-two feet, and will cost about $10,000. 

A new school building on Twenty-eighth Street, near Telegraph 
Avenue, is nearly completed. It is two stories in height, with 
large and commodious rooms, each having sixteen-feet ceilings. 
Its frontage is one hundred and forty-eight feet, with a dej)th of 
sixty-five feet. 

The Rev. David McClure, principal of the California Military 
Academy, is about completing two large three-story and three 
small frame buildings, to take the place of those destroyed by fire, 
September 20th, 1873. These additions will afford ample accom- 
modation for the energetic teaching of the different branches of 
education acquired at this most excellent institution. Cost, 
$22,000. 

The improvements herein referred to are but a part of those 
erected in Oakland during the period named. In nearly every 
portion of the city may be observed buildings of an attractive 
appearance, completed during the present year, and occupied as 
residences, worth from one to three thousand dollars, which 
might be included in the list as additional evidences of the grow- 
ing prosperity of the city. 

Manufacturing Enterprises. 

The advantages of Oakland, as a manufacturing center, are 
very great, and must, in due time, command attention. The 
city is connected with the general railroad system of the country, 
and is also accessible by water, so that goods can be exported by 
railroad or by sea-going vessels. The manufacturing establish- 
ments in Oakland are few in number, but the business transacted 
is quite respectable in volume. 

The Pioneer Planing Mills were started in the year 1863, 
and in March, 1868, were purchased by Blethen & Terry, the 
present owners. The business consists in the manufacture of 
sashes, doors, and blinds, and in furnishing such mill-work as is 
required in house-building. The mills are located on the south 
side of First Street, between Broadway and Washington streets, 
and contain the most valuable and serviceable machinery. The 
warehouse and offices are upon the opposite side of First Street.

The Oakla>t> Pla>txg Mills were biiilt by Bumham, Stande- 
ford & Co., and have been in operation since February, 1869, the 
firm name remaining the same. The buildings, which are lo- 
cated on the comer of Washington and First streets, have been 
recently enlarged and improved, and contain all the machinery 
required in the manufacture of doors and sashes, house trim- 
mings, etc. Adjoining the Oakland Planing Mills is Blair's 
stair-building shop, in which is prepared nearly all of the stair- 
building required in the city. 

The Pacifio Luaibee a>-d ]\Iill Cosipaxt is a corporation, having 
its principal place of business at Oakland Point. The capital 
stock is divided into five thousand five hundred shares, all of 
which have been issued — Soo per share having been paid in, so 
that the capital invested amounts $302,500. In addition to 
the land and buildings at Oakland Point, the company own 
thi-ee thousand acres of timber-land and a saw-mill in San 
Mateo County ; a flume from this land to Pigeon Point, seven 
miles long, and a wharf and warehouse at the latter named 
place ; also thirty-four hundred acres of timber-land and a saw- 
mill in Lake County. The company manufacture all kinds of 
house and mill wol-k, and furnish lumber, railroad ties, posts, 
and cord wood at any point on the coast. J. W. Pearson, Pres- 
ident and Treasurer ; P. M. McLaren, Secretary and Greneral 
Superintendent . 

The Ve>-tjs Floukixg ]\Iills are located on Third Street, south 
side, between Broadway and Franklin streets, and are owned by 
Carrick, Warner & Co. The mills contain two run of stones, 
and have a capacity of 100 ban-els of flour per day. The line of 
the Central Pacific Kailroad is but two blocks distant, so that 
the products of the San Joaquin Yalley can be brought almost to 
the doors of the mill by rail. The proximity to the wharves is 
another advantage of the location, rendering it convenient to 
receive gi-ain from the small vessels that navigate the Bay. 

The Cliktox FLOusrs-G Mills, located on the comer of East 
Eleventh Street and Twelfth Avenue, East Oakland, were erected 
in 18o4. Weston <k Welch are the proprietors. The mills contain 
six run of thirty-inch stones, and have a capacity of two hun- 
dred and twenty-five barrels per twenty-four hours. The engine 
by which the machinery is propelled is fifty horse-power. The 
firm manufacture flour, hominy, oat and corn meal, etc. 

The OA£LA^^) Ikon Works, Ives, Scoville & Co. proprietors, 
are located on Second Street between Washington and Clay. 
This firm is engaged in the manufacture and repaii- of difierent 
kinds of machineiy, and pattern and model making. They also 
manufacture the Climax Side Hill Plow, all steel and wrought 
iron, which they claim excels all others in lightness, strength, 
and durability. 

The San Antoxio Pioxeer Pottery, Daniel Brannan proprietor, 
is located on the comer of East Twelfth Street and Seventeenth

facture of his patent drain and water pipe, now being introduced 
in the market. In addition to this, he manufactures an extensive 
assortment of potteiy of an excellent quality; also terra-cotta, of 
various designs and patterns, for ornamenting brick buildings. 

The Brooklyn New Pottery and Fire Clay Works, Miller & 
Crabb proprietors, are located on the comer of East Twelfth Street 
and Nineteenth Avenue, East Oakland. This firm has recently 
commenced operations, and is preparing to enter extensively 
into the manufacture of terra-cotta tlower-pots, etc. The clay 
used is obtained in the vicinity of the works, and is said to be of 
an excellent quality. 

The Manhattan Marble Company of California commenced 
operations January, 1873, at the corner of First and Filbert 
streets. This company is engaged in the manufacture of man- 
tels, tiles, furniture tops, etc., in imitation of the costly European 
marbles such as Sienna, Jasper, Malachite, and Lisbon. The arti- 
cles manufactured are said to be unequalled in durability, beauty, 
and cheapness. Twelve men are constantly employed, who turn 
out about fifty or sixty mantels a month, besides other work. 

Californl\. Jute Manufacturing Company. — East side Second 
Avenue near East Tenth, East Oakland. Capital, $200,000. M. 
Cerf, President; P. Susmann, Secretary. Manufactures grain 
sacks, wool sacks, potato sacks, burlaps, and twines, from jute, 
of which over 15,000 bales are imported yearly from Calcutta. 
The capacity of the Company's mill is about to be increased to 150 
looms, capable of turning out five million sacks per year. To 
manufacture tliis quantity, employment will be given to at least 
five hundred men. This result has been reached within three 
years, the growth of the institution being unprecedented in the 
manufacturing enterprises on this coast. Beyond the importation 
of the raw material, eveiything is done on the premises — spin- 
ning, weaving, sewing, hydraulic pressing, etc., and nothing in 
the way of machinery is wanting to reach a perfect result in the 
operations of the company. This corporation has heretofore 
been known as the Oakland Cotton Mills, which was organized 
August 25, 1865, by W. H. Eector and his three sons. Origin- 
ally, cotton goods were manufactured, but the machinery for 
that work has been sold to make room for the jute working. 

Pacific Jute Company, incorporated August 16, 1873. Capi- 
tal, $1,000,000. This company has been incorporated with the 
view of ultimate consolidation with the California Jute Manu- 
facturing Company, extensive improvements and additions to the 
factory at East Oakland being contemplated. 

Pacific Cordage Company. — The works of this company are 
located near Fruit Vale R. R. Station, Alameda County. The 
main building is two stories in height and one hundred and ninety 
feet wide by forty-five feet long. The rope-walk -is twenty-six 
feet wide by eighteen hundred feet long. The machinery used 
is of the most improved character, with a capacity of ten thou- 
sand pounds per day of ten hours. Constant employment is af- 
forded to nearly one hundred persons. The raw material used

in this establishment is obtained from Manila and St. Louis, and 
is know as the Manila and Kentucky hemp. The attention of 
those engaged in industrial pursuits is invited to the fact that 
this company could consume annually five hundred tons of the 
Kentucky hemp, if parties would cultivate it on this coast and 
furnish it even at an advance on Eastern prices. 

In this connection, and with the view of employing white labor 
to as great an extent as possible, and to encourage the growth 
of the different fibres which enter into the manufacture in which 
they are engaged, the Company will pay a handsome premium 
for the first ten tons of hemp grown on this Coast, and, in addi- 
tion, the Company, in due season, will furnish the seed gratis to 
any parties who will undertake its growth. At the present time 
the factory is working up to its full capacity, which, as stated 
before, is ten thousand pounds per day. The Managing Agent, 
Mr. J. D. Farwell, assures the public that, outside of pecuniary 
considerations, he and the gentlemen with whom he is associated 
in this enterprise are determined to do all in their power to find 
permanent employment for poor white people, and they already 
contemplate engaging in other manufactures that will afford work 
to women and children in large numbers. 

The Brooklyn Tannery, Crist & Rued, proprietors, located 
on East Twelfth Street, between Twenty-first and Twenty-second 
avenues, East Oakland, is the largest in Alameda County. Dur- 
ing the present year three buildings have been erected by this 
Company, which cover about one hundred by three hundred feet 
of ground. Operations were commenced July, 1873. The 
business consists in the manufacture of sole-leather, also harness 
and skirting leather. At present eight men are employed. The 
quantity of leather manufactured is about two thousand sides a 
month. 

The Oak Gro\'e Tannery, A. C. Nichols and John S. Derby, 
proprietors. The business consists in the manufacture of har- 
ness, skirting, and sole-leather, the principal market for which is 
San Francisco. Six men find constant employment. The 
quantity of leather manufactured is about two hundred and forty 
sides a week. The tannery is located on the corner of East 
Twelfth and Eighteenth streets. 

The Oakla.nd Tannery, located on the Bay shore, about two 
miles north of the old charter line, is owned by Wm. Watts. 
The specialty is the manufacture of the finer kinds of calf-skin, 
for boots and shoes, and the principal market for which is in San 
Francisco. 

Brooklyn Metallurgical Works. — An establishment under this 
name is in process of erection at East Oakland, near the Jute Fac- 
tory, for the reduction of gold, silver, copper, and lead ores, 
which will doubtless be extended to other purposes in the future. 
It is a private establishment, under the charge of Henry H. Fames, 
a practical chemist, and Russell D. Walbridge. These works 
will be in operation in a few weeks, but will not be running to 
their full capacity until some time during the year 1874.

Oakland SnELTiNa Am) Eefining Works. — Extensive works 
for the reduction of ores are now being erected at Melrose, a sta- 
tion on the Central Pacific Railroad, a short distance from San 
Leaudro, which, when completed, will afford increased facilities 
for those engaged in the development of this important branch 
of our resources. 

Lusk's MANUFACTORy OF PRESERVED Fruits. — These works are 
located on Evoy Avenue, between San Pablo and Telegraph 
avenues. The piincipal building is one hundred and eighty feet 
in length, by seventy feet in width ; and, in addition, there are 
several small structures for the different departments of the en- 
tex'prise. Seven thousand cans of preserved assorted fruits are 
packed daily, and over one hundred and fifty persons are con- 
stantly employed. Three hundred and fifty acres of land are in 
cultivation, on which are raised nearly all the vegetables required 
in this establishment. 

Carriage Manufactories. — There are several establishments 
in Oakland engaged in the manufacture of carriages, buggies, 
and wagons, and a variety of articles connected therewith, the 
quality of which will favorably compare with those produced 
elsewhere. One of the most extensive is the Oakland Carriage 
Factory, M. W. Allen proprietor, located on the corner of Tenth 
and Franklin Streets. The Pioneer Factory of William Sohst, 
corner of Franklin and Eighth streets, is entensively engaged in 
the same line. The new and commodious building recently 
erected by this gentleman affords ample facilities for the eco- 
nomical and j)rompt dispatch of the various departments of his 
business. Northey & McGrath, 803 East Twelfth Street, are 
also engaged in the manufacture of carriages, buggies, wagons, 
and all kinds of agricultural implements. 

In this connection may be mentioned the establishments of 
George A. King, 414 Eleventh Street ; Wagar & Weymouth, 365 
Eleventh ; Henry Weeks, 314 East Eleventh, rear of Washing- 
ton Hall; and KcOrew & Hamilton, 1060 and 1064 Thirteenth 
Avenue, where carriage-making, repairing, and general black- 
smithing is done in workmanlike manner. 

WiNDiMiLLS. — W. J. Tucker & Brother have recently opened an 
establishment on Second Street, near Washington, for the manu- 
facture of Peck's Patent Windmill, an Eastern invention. The 
manufacturers claim that this is the only self-regulating, noise- 
less windmill in the country, and that, after a series of experi- 
ments, it is now brought to perfection. 

The Fruit Vale Quartz Company, whose quarries are located 
at Fruit Vale, are engaged in the business of laying sidewalks, 
carriage-drives, and garden-paths with white quartz. The com- 
pany have an office at No. 923 Broadway, where any orders left 
will be promptly attended to. 

The Pioneer Soda Works, James I. Bliven & Co. proprietors, 
are located at 665 and 667 Broadway. These works supply Oak- 
land and its vicinity with an excellent article of soda, the demand 
for which is constantly increasing.

Population, 1870, 1872, and 1873. 

The Federal Census of 1870 placed the population of the town- 
ship of Oakland at 11,104, divided as follows : Native, 6,940; 
foreign, 4,164 ; or white, 10,142 ; colored, 55; Chinese, 906; In- 
dian, 1. Of this aggregate 10,500 are declared the population 
of the city, and the remainder, 600, represent the townshij) out- 
side the Charter Limits. No official classification of the sexes 
and ages has been as yet published, and it is therefore impossible 
to compare the above figures with the returns of the school 
census of 1871 and 1872 and the data collected during the 
progress of the canvass for the present volume. In 1869, the 
total number of children of 15 years and under, according to 
the school census, was 2,144 ; 1870, 2,628 ; 1871, 2,952 ; 1872, 
3,761. 

The increase of children from July, 1870, to July, 1872, accord- 
ing to these returns, is 1,133, from which should be deducted 
300 (the estimated number added to the School Census from a 
part of Temescal), leaving 833, or thirty-two per cent. This rate 
must not be taken as an average for the entire population, from 
the fact that the element over twenty does not increase in the 
same ratio as those under that age. 

The number of names on the poll-list for the present year is 
2,800. The number of votes cast at the election, 1871 was: Oak- 
land, 1,260; Point, 281 ; part of Temescal (recently included 
within the city limits), 165. Total, 1,706. 

The following table has been compiled from the above and 
other reliable data collected during the progress of the canvass 
for the present volume. Attention is respectfully directed to the 
figures contained therein, and the aggregate derived therefrom;

This aggregate, after deducting therefrom 1,000 as the popu- 
lation of a part of Temescal recently added to the limits of the 
city, and compared with the returns of the Federal census of 
1870 (10,500), shows a gain in two years of 511, or less than five 
per cent. ; while the school census, which includes nearly forty 
per cent, of the population, shows a gain of 833, or thirty-two 
per cent. This discrepancy can be accounted for only upon the 
theory that a part of the township population residing outside

of the corporate limits was included in the returns of the city, or 
that the enumeration was absolutely inaccurate. This must be 
assumed, because the school census shows a regular and propor- 
tionate increase. It is taken annually by some competent citizen 
of Oakland, and as the amount of school money to be received 
from the State and County depends upon the number of children, 
there is the strongest motive to make the returns as large as the 
facts warrant. 

In support of the assumption that residents of the outside dis- 
tricts were included in the returns of the city the fact is referred 
to that, at the general election in 1871, the precinct of Temescal 
returned 329 votes, which properly represent a population of 
1974, by allowing one vote to each six of population, about the 
proportion of Alameda County, and the usual estimate for per- 
manently settled agricultural districts ; but according to the 
returns of the Federal census, the population was only 604. 
That over one half of the population were voters is the con- 
clusion to be drawn, and it is so obviously incorrect as to 
throw discredit upon the entire returns. If these deductions 
are correct, the jDopulation of the city of Oakland, August, 
1870, was 9,130 and not 10,500, as reported by the Federal 
census. 

By the authority of the City Council, a census of Oakland was 
taken in June of the present year, with the following results :

figures, as compared with the returns of the census of the present 
year, 15,387, are 626 less, or about four and one half per cent., 
a reasonable estimate for the increase during the twelve months 
between the dates of the respective estimates. 

It is to be regretted that the published returns of the census 
of the present year do not exhibit a classification of the white 
element according to age, as the existence of such data would be 
useful for present reference, and valuable as a basis for future 
estimates. 

Meteorological. 

The only meteorological observations have been made by John 
Eoss, of Oakland, and have been mainly confined to recording 
the rainfall, which has been as follows, for the years named:

Real Estate, 

From E, C. Sessions, Real Estate Dealer, we obtain the fig- 
ures given below : 

Total sales in the City of Oakland, from Nov. 

1st, 1866, to July 1st, 1872 $12,496,843 

Sales, foreign, ending July 1st, 1873 2,586,482 

Sales from July 1st, 1873, to Oct. 13th, 1873, 

(present date) 657,922 

Total $15,741,247 

The above total represents the amount of all sales effected in 
Oakland City, from the time it commenced to assume import- 
ance and attract general attention throughout the State. Dur- 
ing the year ending November 1, 1868, the sales amounted to 
$29,83,719, but, with the exception of that year, the report for the 
year 1872-3 is the best on record. In 1868 the greater part of 
the real estate business was purely speculative. For three years 
there has been but very little speculation in city propei'ty; sales 
have been mainly to parties intending to improve and occupy 
the property. Prices are not greatly in excess of those prevail- 
ing three years ago. These facts indicate that the business has 
been healthy and legitimate, far better for the city than another 
season of speculation. The street railroads have brought into 
market hundreds of acres of land, and rendered it valuable for 
building purj)oses. The improvements outside of the old Enci- 
nal line have been extensive and valuable, but far the larger num- 
ber of dwelling-houses have been erected in the central portion of 
the city, within a few moments' walk of the local railroad.

The niimber of births recorded for the year is 153 males ; 139 
females ; total 292, showing a balance of 80 births over the 
deaths. 

Estimating the popxilation, December 31, 1870, at 10,000 ; 
December 31, 1871, at 11,000 ; and December 31, 1872 (including 
Brooklyn), at 15,000, give a mortality of 1 to every 82 of the 
population for the year 1870-71 ; 1 to eveiy 102 for 1871-2 ; and 
1 to every 71 for 1872-73. The number of bu-ths for the years 
1871-2 is 179 ; and for 1872-3 is 292. The returns of 1871-2 
show that deducting the number of deaths by accident, tubercu- 
lar diseases, and those of children under five years (a large pro- 
portion of which generally result from negligence or ignorance), 
would give a yearly mortality of 1 in 216 for 1871-72. 

Epidemic and endemic diseases are of rare occurrence ; in- 
flammatory diseases are of a mild character. 

Public Libraries. 

In addition to the libraiy connected with the University of 
California, which comprises 10,000 volumes, and several smaller 
collections belonging to educational institutions, there are in the 
city the Oakland and Odd Fellows' Libraries, each of which 
contains a valuable selection of works in the different depart- 
ments of modern literature, to which additions of the new and 
standard publications of the day are made as rajoidly as cir- 
cumstances will permit. Aii-angements are in progi-ess to secure 
the organization of another libraiy, under the auspices of the 
Masonic Fraternity, and from the character of those engaged in 
the movement there is but little doubt of its final success. 

Oakl.^jnd Libkaky, corner Washington and Twelfth streets. — 
The Oakland Library Association was organized on the fifth day 
of March, 1868, by a meeting of the citizens of Oakland called 
for that jDiu-pose. The first officers (elected April 27, 1868) were:

they were removed to the present location. The library was 
first opened to the public January 1, 1869. By the liberality 
of a few of the citizens of Oakland, the association was presented, 
in 1869, with a valuable lot on the comer of Washington and 
Twelfth streets, upon which has been recently erected a com-

The Newspaper and Periodical Press of Oakland. 

There are three daily and two weekly newspapers published in 
Oakland. The News, daily, now owned by Gagan & Fairchild, 
was started in November, 1863, and for five years was the only 
paper published in the city. It is prosperous and growing; Ke- 
publican in politics, and has kept pace with the growth and 
improvement of Oakland. The Transcrij)t, daily, was started 
April, 1868, and has changed ownership several times, the pres- 
ent iDrojjrietor being A. W. Bishop, who has succeeded John 
Scott, under whose management it has been conducted for sev- 
eral years. It is Eepublican in politics. The Alameda County 
Gazette, weekly, is also published by A. W. Bishop. The Eoe- 
ning Torchlight, ■pnhlish.ed by Louis Dunand & Co., was com- 
menced in November, 1872. It is Independent in politics. The 
Oakland Home Journal, weekly, was established by its present 
proprietor, William Halley, on the 9th of July, 1871, as the 
Brooklyn Home Journal. It has been since twice enlarged, and 
has a constantly increasing circulation. The University Echo 
is a monthly paper published under the auspices of the Durant 
Khetorical Society, an organization composed of students of the 
State University. The Oakland Monthly Review is issued by John 
W. Boss & Co. The first number appeared in December, 1873 . 
During the history of the city very many unsuccessful attempts 
have been made to found other periodicals, entailing the loss of 
a large amount of capital.

COUNTY INFIRMARY. 

The County Infirmary is located on a tract of 127 acres of 
land near the San Lorenzo Creek, about five miles from the 
town of San Leandro. 

The Infirmary is intended to answer the double purpose of a 
hospital and an almshouse, and suitable steps have been taken 
to secure the comfort of the patients. The County Board of 
Supei-visors are ex-officio directors of the Infirmary. The build- 
ings are inexpensive; the original cost of the main edifice — which 
is of wood — ha\-ing been $5,000. Numerous finiit trees have 
been planted, and the extensive grounds are cultivated by the 
convalescent patients and other inmates of the institution. 



PUBLIC SCHOOI.S.* 

The past histoiy and present condition of the public schools 
in the city of Oakland are detailed at considerable length in the 
carefully prepared report of the City Superintendent, Frederick 
M. Campbell, Esq., to the Board of Education, for the year end- 
ing June 30th, 1873. From this document we compile the fol- 
lowing information concerning the public schools. 

The first public school in the city was organized in July, 1853, 
with sixteen puiDils. The teacher was Miss H. J. Jayne, sister of 
the present Police Judge, and now Mrs. Edson Adams. The 
building used was erected at a cost of one thousand dollars, and 
it is now occupied as an African Church, having been removed 
from its original location, at the corner of Clay and Fifth streets, 
to the corner of Market and Seventh streets. This building af- 
forded all the public school accommodation of Oakland until 
the year 1862. In May, of that year, the block of land bounded 
by Twelfth, Eleventh, Jefi'erson, and Grove streets was pur- 
chased for nine hundred dollars : now worth, at least, forty thou- 
sand dollars. A small building was erected thereon, and school 
was opened in November of the same year. In August, 1865, 
the lot, 100 by 125, on the corner of Alice and Fifth streets, was 
purchased. The first grammar school was commenced in what 
is now the Lafayette Primary, in November, 1867. The Pres-

cott School-house, at Oakland Point, was the next building 
erected, and it was occupied, for the jBirst time, on January 4th, 
1869. In August of the same year, the primary school building, 
corner of Grrove and Fifth streets, was formally occupied. The 
High School building, on the corner of Market and Twelfth 
streets, was dedicated September 17th, 1871. In twenty years 
the department has increased from one building, with sixteen 
2Dupils, to buildings containing near fifty rooms and over twenty- 
one hundred. pupils.

During the month of May, and the first week in June, 1872, 
were held the annual examinations for promotions. There were 
examined 1,263 pupils, of whom 737 were promoted. 

In reference to the comparatively small number of promo- 
tions, the Superintendent says:

" Our department has grown very rapidly within the last year; 
families moving into our city from various portions of the State 
where the children have been necessarily deprived of the thor- 
ough drill in the lower grades, which the children living in 
cities, where there are graded schools, as in our own city, have. 
These pupils are almost invariably found to be unequal in their 
attainments— well advanced in some branches, and very deficient 
in others; so that while grading them correctly for some studies, 
it is often found to be too high for others. The examinations 
this year have also been more rigid than heretofore. Yet, while 
they were difficult, they were not unjust. The Superintendent 
is confident the results will be fully up to those attained in the 
San Francisco schools." 

Vocal music is taught in all of the classes by their respective 
teachers. 

Under the instructions of Mrs. A. W. Brodt, the classes have 
made good progress in the study of drawing. 

The Cosmopolitan School was started in 1870 as an experi- 
ment, with twenty j)upils, and the services of Professor A. D. 
A. Champion were secured as teacher. The exercises are con- 
ducted in the French language, and the pupils show remarkable 
proficiency in their studies. 



UNIVERSITY or CALIFORNIA. 

The State Constitution requires that the Legislature shall 
maintain a university, but only a technical obedience was given 
to this section of the fundamental law of the State until the year 
1863, when the Legislature passed a concurrent resolution ac- 
cepting the donation of lands tendered to the State by Congress, 
for the endowment of a College of Agriculture and Mechanic 
Arts. In March, 1866, the Legislature passed an Act to estab- 
lish an " Agricultural, Mining and Mechanical Arts College." 
The directors sj)ecified in that Act, decided that the proposed' 
college should be located in Alameda County, but did not desig- 
nate the part in which it should be located. The College of 
California owned a tract of one hundred and sixty acres of land 
at Berkely, five miles from Oakland, and in August, 1867^ the 
Trustees passed a series of resolutions, proposing to donate this 
property to the University, and offering to give its entire assets 
to the State institution, provided the State should forthwith 
occupy the property, and organize and put into operation a Uni- 
versity of California, which should include a college of Mines, 
of Agriculture, and an Academical College — ^all of the same 
grade, and with courses of instruction equal to those of Eastern 
colleges. The Directors of the Agricultural College accepted the 
offer, and received a conveyance of the property at Berkeley. In 
March, 1868, the Legislature passed the Act incorporating the 
State Universitj^ under which its affairs have ever since been

as follows: 

1. A State College of Agriculture. 1 

2. A State College of Mechanic Arts. Inn j? a i 

3. A State College of Mines. _ _ ^''^^'^es of Arts. 

4. A State College of Civil Engineering. J 

5. A State College of Letters. 

The full course of Instruction in each college embraces all ap- 
propriate studies, and continues for at least four years. 

The University possesses apparatus jDrocured from Europe, 
valued at $30,000, for the use of the chemical and other scientific 
experiments. The student are organized into four military 
companies, under the State law, and are drilled twice each week. 
Professor Welcker and Professor Soule, graduates from West 
Point, have charge of the military instruction of the pujDils. 
The exercises are conducted in the elegant and spacious new 
buildings erected by the State at Berkeley. The State owns the 
four blocks of land between Twelfth, Fourteenth, Franklin, and 
Harrison streets, in Oakland. Provision is made by law for five 
scholarships, of $300 per annum each, to be given to members 
entering the fourth class, after a competitive examination. 

The Legislature, at the session of 1871-2, jjassed Acts ap- 
propriating $6,000 per month for the pay of professors and tutors, 
and $300,000 for the building fund. The original endowments 
of the University were valued at $420,000 — without including 
150,000 acres of laud, but a small part of which has been located. 
An abundant supply of water has been introduced throughout 
the buildings and grounds of the University. When all the im- 
provements projected are completed, the University site will be- 
come one of the most attractive spots in the State.

INSTITUTION FOR THE DEAF AND DUMB AND THE BLIND. 

This institution, situated at the base of the foot-hills, foui' and 
a half miles north of Oakland, and in immediate proximity to the 
State University, was originally located in San Francisco. It was 
started — and for some time sustained — through the exertions of 
the benevolent women of that city. The school was opened 
April 30, 1860, with three jDupils. As the institution grew in 
numbers, State aid was obtained, and 1865, it had increased to 
such a degree as to justify its entire organization under State 
auspices. 

A law was passed March 3, 186G, " pi'oviding for a removal 
of the school from the limited and inconvenient quarters in San 
Francisco " — for enlarging the scope of its beneficence — for vest- 
ing in the State the title to all property held by the institution, 
and providing for a Board of Directors, under the Code ap- 
pointed by the Governor. Suitable appropriations were made 
to carry out the purjoose of the Act. 

After long and patient examinations, the Commissioners de- 
cided upon the present location. Plans — drawn by Messrs. 
Wright & Sanders, of San Francisco — were adopted, and the 
buildings now occupied were erected. 

The ground was broken June 29, 1867, and the corner-stone 
was laid September 26, of the same year, and the new building 
was occuj^ied for school purposes October 20, 1869. 

The institution is built of stone— is three stories in height — 
having a total frontage of 26-4 feet, a depth of 140 feet, and the 
height to the top of the spii-e is 160 feet. It is admirably planned 
for the purpose of such an establishment. 

The whole cost of building, grounds, shops, heating apparatus, 
laundry, and the furniture, has been about §180,000. The in- 
stitution has a present capacity for about 150. During the year 
1872-3, 112 persons received instruction. 

The benefits of the institution are free to all resident deaf and 
dumb, or blind, persons, between the ages of six and twenty-five, 
who are of sound mind, free fi'om contagious or oflfensive dis- 
eases, and of correct moral habits. 

It is not an asylum, in any sense of the term, as its inmates 
are received only for purposes of education. 

The names of the Board of Directors are : 

J. Mora Moss, President. John C. Hats, Vice-President. 

T. L. Baekek, Auditor. Erwin J. Crane. 

H. A. Palmer, Secretary and Treasurer.

PRIVATE EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS. 



CALIFORNIA MILITARY ACADEMY. 

This military institution, opened January 9, 1865, is the first 
of the kind that has been established on this coast. Rev. D. 
McClure is the proprietor and principal. The academic staff is 
composed of nine experienced teachers. 

In the academic department, well-defined and extensive 
courses of study are pm'sued in the English branches, ancient 
and modern languages, natural science, mathematics, and com- 
mercial knowledge — such as will jDrepare students for college or 
business. The institution is also organized as a military post, 
and it is obligatoi-y upon every student to attend the daily mili- 
tary drill, and perform the duties of a cadet — which do not in- 
terfere with the hours of study. There were 176 students in at- 
tendance dui'ing the last year. 

Location. — The location, on Telegraph Avenue, near Pros- 
pect Avenue, is one that affords the cadets a scene of rare beauty. 
From the rise of the ground upon which the buildings are situ- 
ated, an extensive view is had of Oakland and the surrounding 
valleys, of the Bay and City of San Francisco, and of the Ocean 
through the Golden Gate. The Academy may be reached by the 
Telegraph Avenue cars. 

Buildings. — In location, style, and general adaptation to the 
purposes of education, they are unsurpassed by any similar in- 
stitution in the State. Every care has been taken to secure the 
best arrangements for the comfort, health, and refinement of 
the cadets. Two large three-story buildings, and three small ones, 
have been erected in the j)lace of those destroyed by fire on the 
evening of September 20, 1873, at a cost of 822,000, which aflbrd 
ample room for school purposes, and for in-door recreation and 
drill during stormy weather. 

Design of the Institution. — It is the fixed purpose of the 
principal, and those associated with him, to render, the institution 
an efficient instrument for the symmetrical development and dis-

cipline of the mind, and the formation of a good iDhysical con- 
stitution. Ease and grace of manners, kindness and courtesy in 
social intercourse, are matters of constant oversight. That edu- 
cation is more anxiously sought for the pupils, which has sj)ecial 
reference to the best practical jDreparations for the duties of this 
life, and also to that moral and religious culture which will fit 
them for the life to come. 

MiuTAEY. — The military system of drilling and discipline has 
been adaj)ted to secure physical culture, promptness, decision of 
movement, erect carriage, submission to constituted authority, 
jDresence of mind, ability to govern, and the repression of the 
tendency to mdeness, natural to an assembly of boys. This de- 
partment is thoroughly organized, affording an opportunity for 
obtaining a complete knowledge of the duties of the soldier and 
the officer. The full routine of a Military Post is constantly ob- 
served, with its Headquarters, Quartermaster, Commissaiy, and 
the other Departments. It is obligatory upon eveiy cadet to at- 
tend the daily militaiy exercises as a regular part of the Academic 
Coui'se. Physical deformity and sickness are the only grounds 
of excuse. 

The Academy is furnished with muskets and equipments suit- 
able for the use of cadets, and a large armor}' for in-door and 
bayonet exercises. 

The Company, Battalion, and Skirmish Drills are conducted 
according to Upton's Tactics. 

The real object of militaiy discipline is not to make soldiers 
only of the students, but to give them strength of body, vigor of 
constitution, and manliness of bearing; to fit them not merely 
for the field of battle, but for all employments and departments 
of life which demand vigor, energy, and endiu-ance. The efi'ects 
of the regular, daily, systematic drill under competent officers, 
in restoring to health and strength delicate, dyspeptic, and debil- 
itated youths would be alone sufficient to assure us of its high 
utility. The j)romptness, accuracy, and general habits of order 
and precision to which cadets are trained, together with the 
steady cultivation of fidelity, honesty, and courtesy, as essential 
to military' excellence, have also been found of incalculable value 
in fitting them for all professional and business i:)ursuits. 

The militaiy drill does not encroach upon study hours, but occu- 
pies time usually given to recreation, which is often worse than 
wasted by students. 

The Legislatare of the State of California passed an Act, Feb- 
raary 20, 1872, in which provision is made: 

1. To commission the Commandant of this Academy as Major 
in the National Guard of Cahfornia, and — 

2. To furnish the cadets with arms and accouterments. 

Unifoem. — The "fatigue" coat is a close-fitting gray cloth 
jacket, with black trimmings. The " dress " suit is a gray cloth 
frock coat, with black cloth cufis, collar, and shoulder-piece ex- 
tending from the seam of the collar to the end of the shoulder.

Cadets are required to wear the uniform during the term time, 
except when visiting their homes — then it is optional. 

Passes. — No cadet is permitted to leave the Academy grounds 
unaccompanied by one of the Academic Staff, unless he has ob- 
tained a pass, stating the place to which he is going, the hour of 
departure, and the time he is required to return. A violation of 
this pass, in any respect, is considered a breach of confidence, 
and deprives the cadet of a pass for a length of time depending 
ujion the circumstances of the case. 

Cadet Officers. — The appointment of every cadet officer of 
the corps is made by the Superintendent, and is based upon his 
qualifications as a student and a soldier. He must have a high 
standing in the following particulars : 

1. Deportment and Academic scholarship. 

2. Theoretical and practical military knowledge. 

3. Natural ability to command. 

This basis of appointment has been in operation during the 
present year. Previous appointments were made more with ref- 
erence to military knowledge than deportment, and did not, 
therefore, represent the most distinguished scholars and soldiers, 
as is the case with the present apjoointments. 

In the choice of officers, preference is given to members of the 
first and second classes in the Academic Department. 

Graduation. — Cadets who have honorably completed the Aca- 
demic Course of Study will receive a certificate of graduation at 
the close of the academic year. 



MILLS' SEMINARY. 

The Young Ladies' Seminary of Benicia was founded in 1857, 
and after various vicissitudes of fortune, became the private 
property of Kev. C. T. Mills, in 1865. Under his control, the 
school became exceedingly prosjDerous, and the old and inferior 
buildings were no longer serviceable. It was decided to remove 
the seminary to a tract of land near Fmit Vale, in Brooklyn 
Township, and in June, 1870, work was commenced upon the 
new building. On April 8, 1871, the structure was completed, 
and accepted from the contractor. From one of the circulars 
issued, we copy the following description : 

" The building is an imposing structure, presenting a front of 
two hundred and eighteen feet, with a wing of one hundred and 
thirty feet, and is two stories in height, surmounted by a Man- 
sard roof. The outline is well broken ; the center and end wings 
project well forward; the main building, somewhat higher than 
the wings, is sm-mounted by a cupola, from which there is a 
splendid view of the surrounding country. The great size of the 
structure, its fine proportions and details, give it an air of solid- 
ity, as well as an inviting and home-like look. 



PAGE & JORDAN. Real Estate, 462 Tenth Street near Broadway, Oakland. 



E. "W. "WOODWAHD, 952 Broadway, Keal Estate Agent and CoUector. 



50 OAKLAND DIRECTORY. 

" The seminary is intended to accommodate about one hun- 
dred and ninety-five pupils. On the main floor are parlors, 
reading-room, libraiT, and recitation-rooms. In the east wing 
are two veiy large school rooms, besides a parlor, several rooms 
for recitations, music, and the various purposes of the seminary. 
In the west wing are the apartments of the principals; adjoining 
them is a suite of rooms intended for use in case of sickness. 
The upper stories are devoted to sleeping apartments. Each 
room— an-anged for two pupils — has a toilet apartment off from 
it, with stationary wash-bowl, and each room is lighted with gas. 
The bath-rooms, etc., are ample and complete. Every room 
is frescoed neatly and handsomely; those of the first story, the 
parlors, reception, and school-rooms, dining-hall, and music- 
rooms being very elaborately decorated, making them remark- 
ably attractive and cheerful. The dining-hall, a fine room thirty- 
six by seventy feet, and the kitchen, are connected with the main 
building by a conidor, and the laundiy, sei-vants' room, etc., are 
apart from the main building. The halls are very spacious, and 
stairways numerous and ample, special pains to secure safety in 
that particular, in case of fire, having been taken. Fire-extin- 
guishers of the most approved kind have been procured, and 
placed in proper jDOsition in the building. Under the building 
is a fine, large cellar. Every effort has been made to secvire 
light, proper ventilation, and sunshine. The entire building is 
warmed by steam and lighted with gas made on the premises. 
Inside blinds have been provided for the windows." 

An Art-room has been recently added to the building. Eev. 
C. T. Mills is Principal, and Mrs. S. L. Mills, Associate Princi- 
pal. They are aided by a coi-ps of twenty-three teachers. 

The attendance for the year ending May, 1873, in the several 
departments, was as follows: 

Senior class 19 

Senior middle class 20 

Junior middle class 35 

Junior 63 

Preparatory 131 

"Whole number of students 268 

In the annual catalogue for 1873, the proprietor says: 
" Though the INIills' Seminary, for the present, is private prop- 
erty, the hope and purpose is to make it a permanent institution. 
It is the desire of the proprietor, as well as those who have so 
generously aided him in the work, that it shall be so arranged — 
and eventually so endowed — that, like Mt. Holyoke, or Yassar, 
it shall be self-perpetuating. The hope is, that, adding to its 
resources and appliances until it shall become, in every resjoect, 
all that can be desired, and depending upon no individual life, 
it shall continue to be a fountain of knowledge and a blessed in- 
fluence long after those who have aided in the enterprise have 
finished their work on earth." 

The next term of the seminary will commence January 7, 1874.

^PACIFIC THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY. 

The Pacific Theological Seminary was founded in 1869, in San 
Francisco. The buildings erected by the Female College of the 
Pacific, on Academy Hill, were purchased by the Seminary, and 
possession taken in June, 1871, at which time the regular exer- 
cises of this seminary were commenced. The value of the prop- 
erty is $70,000. Last year there were seven students in the reg- 
ular classes. Three young men graduated in May, 1872. 

The Trustees of the seminary are as follows: 

Kev. A. L. Stone, D.D. Dea. L. B. Benchley. 

Kev. I. E. Dwinell, D.D. Dea. T. B. Bigelow. 

Kev. J. A. Benton, D.D. Dea. E. P. Flint. 

Eev. J. K. McLean. . S. S. Smith, M.D. 

Rev. W. C. Pond. J, M. Haven, Esq. 

Eev. C. H. Pope. AV. N. Hawley, Esq. 

Rev. A. L. Stone, D.D President of the Board. 

Rev. J. K. McLean Secretary of the Board. 

Dea. L. B. Benchley Treasurer of the Board. 

There is a visiting committee, composed of the following per- 
sons: 

Rev. EH Corwin. Rev. T. H. Rouse. 

S. S. Smith. , Wm. K. Rowell. 

The regular course of study extends over three years, but there 
are courses adapted to two yeai's, or to one year. The seminary 
is under the ausjjices of the Congregational Church, but the 
course of study is not biased in favor of that denomination, some 
of the students belonging to other churches. Rev. J. A. Benton, 
D.D., is Professor of Sacred Literature, and Rev. George Mooar, 
D.D., is Professor of Theology. 

The year consists of but one term. It begins with the third 
Thursday in August, and ends with the fourth Thursday in May. 
There will be a recess from the 20th of December to the 3d of 
January. 

Credible evidence of piety, membership in some Evangelical 
Christain Church, a collegiate education, or such other literary and 
scientific attainments as promise a fair degree of usefulness, will 
entitle all young men to the advantages of this seminary. 

Relative to exjDenses, the Trustees have the following in their 
circular : 

" There will be no charge for tuition, rent of rooms, or use of 
furniture. The Trustees will, so far as practicable, furnish text- 
books and reference books free to those who are in need; them- 
selves being the judges of the necessity. Those who are so dis- 
posed can live very economically in Oakland or San Francisco. 
It is thought that one dollar a day will meet all the absolutely nec- 
essary expenses of an economical person; fifty per cent, more

could be used to advantage; a hundred per cent, more would 
not be deemed very extravagant. 

" The American Education Society will render aid to the pu- 
pils of this seminary who are esjDecially needy, and who take the 
full course of three years. The amount bestowed will be $80 or 
$100 a year (in currency) to each beneficiary." 



GOLDEN GATE ACADEMY. 

This academy is a school for boys, and is located at the Pacific 
Theological Seminary. G. J. Gam well is Principal. Number 
of pupils, 64. All pupils must board at the school, and the 
circular announces that: 

"It is the aim of the Faculty to furnish, as near as may be, 
an equivalent for the well-regulated Christian fireside. In this 
endeavor, they receive most valued aid from Professor Mooar 
and family, who live in the building." 



CONVENT OP OUR LADY OP THE SACRED HEART. 

This institution is for the education of girls, and is located on 
"Webster Street near the head of Lake Merritt. It was dedicated 
in 1868. The teachers are " Sisters of the Holy Name of Jesus 
and Mary," who came from Canada for the purpose of acting as 
instructors in this school. The funds for purchasing the grounds 
and erecting the buildings were raised through the jDcrsonal ex- 
ertions of Rev. Father King, of the Church of the Immaculate 
Conception (formerly St. Mary's Catholic Church). The curricu- 
lum of studies resembles that of other schools for the education 
of young ladies. The new building recently erected will afford 
all the accommodations necessary to meet the growing wants of 
this flourishing institution. 



ST. JOSEPH'S ACADEMY. 

This academy is located on the corner of Jackson and Fifth 
streets, and is conducted by the " Christian Brothers," Brother 
Pirmian acting as Principal. It was opened July 5, 1870, and 
is a prosperous and well managed school for the education of 
boys. Number of pupils, 80. 



PRIVATE SCHOOLS. 

Mrs. E. C. Poston's Seminary for Young Ladies, is located on

retired, the grounds are spacious and pleasantly sliaded, thus 
securing every opportunity for healthful exercises as well as the 
quiet and seclusion so necessary for the successful prosecution 
of study. The number of pupils is limited, and the arrange- 
ments of the household are such that every pupil is under the 
direct control and influence of the Princij)al. They form no ac- 
quaintance except with her approbation, and mingle in society 
only under her supervision. Number of pupils receiving instmc- 
tion at the present time, 53. 

Madames Braun and Hanison have established a seminary for 
young ladies at No. 264 Eleventh Street. The number of pupils 
is limited to 30. 

The Oakland College, Professor C. C. Blohm, Principal, is lo- 
cated on the south-west corner of Harrison and Sixth streets. 
This is a day and boarding school for boys. 

Mrs. H. N. Field's Oakland Home School for Young Ladies, 
is located on Hobart Street near Telegraj^h Avenue. All the dif- 
ferent branches of a first-class English education, together with 
the modern languages, are taught by a corps of competent 
teachers. 

There are several other seminaries and smaller schools taught 
in parlors, located in various i^arts of the city, which are worthy 
of special mention, did space permit.

FIRE DEPARTMENT. 57 



FIRE DEPARTMENT. 

The first attempt to establish a Fire Department in the City of 
Oa-klaud was made in the early part of 1853, which resulted in 
the organization of two engine comiDanies, the Empire and Wash- 
ington and the Oakland Hook and Ladder Company, and the 
election of John Scott as Chief Engineer. Three large cisterns, 
which still remain in use, were soon after constructed on Broad- 
way, between First and Fourth streets, to sujjply the engines 
with water, and the necessary aj)i)aratus was obtained to give 
efficiency to the operations of the Department. The apparatus 
then used by the Empire Company, a small New York side-stroke 
engine, purchased originally at a cost of $2,000, is now in the 
Santa Clara Fire Department, in good condition. This organi- 
zation had but a short-lived existence. It was within a year 
disbanded, the property delivered over to the Council, and up to 
1869, Oakland had little or no means of resisting the fieiy element. 

The present Dej)artment was organized March 13, 1869, under 
the provisions of an ordinance apjDroved February 4, 1869, by 
the election of John C. Halley as Chief Engineer, and Thomas 
McGuii-e and George Taylor, Assistants, who succeeded John 
Scott, Chief, and John C. Halley and W. "W. Moore, Assistants, 
acting under authority of a previous organization. The apparatus 
of the Department comprised a third-class Amoskeag fire engine, 
purchased by the city, and a hose carriage procured by funds 
temporarily advanced by Col. John Scott. The succeeding offi- 
cers elected in 1870, were: Miles Doody, Chief Engineer; George 
Taylor and G. W. Scribner, Assistants; who continued in office 
until January 16, 1872, when George Taylor was elected Chief 
Engineer, and R. E. Harmon and George Farwell, Assistants, 
who in turn were succeeded by the present officers. 

The organization of the Department is at present composed of 
a Board of eight Fire Commissioners, a Chief Engineer, and 
two Assistants. The aj^paratus consists of two steam engines, 
two hand engines, and two hook and ladder trucks; each engine 
has a hose carriage . The steamers and two of the hose carriages 
are drawn by horses. 

"Water for the use of the Department is obtained from forty- 
five hydrants, supplied by the works of the Contra Costa Water 
Co., and five cisterns. The estimated value of the Department 
property, December, 1873, is $30,000.

CHURCHES 



First Baptist. 

Location, southeast corner of Fourteenth and Brush streets. 
(Vacant), Pastor. 

This church was organized in December, 1854, under the 
labors of Rev. E. J. AVillis, missionary. 

The first house of worship was dedicated December, 1854, 
and was the second Protestant house of worship comi^leted in 
this cit}'. It was located at the corner of Fifth and Jefferson 
streets, and cost with the land about $2,000. 

Mr. Willis' pastorate terminated in June, 1856. The church 
was without a Pastor for about a year. In May, 1857, Rev. Har- 
vey Gilbert began to preach, and four months later, was settled 
as Pastor. He resigned in December, 1858, and was succeeded 
in April, 1859, by Rev. J. B. Saxton. In May, 1863, Mr. Saxton 
having left, Rev. John Francis became Pastor of the church. 
Soon thereafter the house of worship was removed to the corner 
of Ninth and Clay streets — a more eligible situation in view of 
the rapid growth of the city. This house, and the lot on which 
it was located, were sold, when the new edifice was erected to the 
Oakland Turn Yerein. 

Mr. Francis resigned in July, 1864, and was succeeded, in 
November of the same year, by Rev. A. L. Baker, a recent grad- 
uate from Rochester. Mr. Baker was compelled to resign in a 
few months on account of ill-health. In July, 1865, Rev. B. T. 
Martin was called to the pastorate, and continued Pastor for 
nearly six years. During Mr. Martin's pastorate, the present 
house of worship was erected, at a cost of about $30,000, and 
was formally dedicated in March, 1869, the chapel in the rear 
having been occupied three months before, and used while the 
main building; was being completed. The lot cost $2,500. 

In Febniary, 1871, Mr. Martin resigned his position as Pastor, 
since which time the church has had supplies most of the time, 
until June, 1873, when the Rev. R. F. Parshall assumed the du- 
ties of Pastor, who continued until Oct., 1873, when he resigned. 

iSei-vices every Sunday, at forty- five minutes past ten o'clock 
A.M., and half past seven o'clock p.m. Prayer meeting, "Wednes- 
day evenings. Covenant meeting, Wednesday evening before 
first Sabbath in each month. 

The Sunday School connected with the church was organized 
in 1854. It has an attendance of over two hundred scholars, 
and a library of five hundred volumes. Meets at one o'clock p.m. 
Superintendent, A. W. Brodt. A Chinese Sunday School of one 
hundred pupils is connected with the church. Meets at six 
o'clock P.M. Superintendent, J. P. Cogswell.

In August, 1853, Rev. Dr. Ver Mehr, Rector of Grace Churcli, 
San Francisco, visited Oakland to aid in the establishment of a 
church, and with much difficulty a meeting of twelve persons 
was convened. For various reasons, however, the project was 
for the time abandoned. Toward the close of the same year, the 
Rev. Dr. Morgan appeared, and preached a sermon to a small 
but attentive audience beneath the branches of one of Oakland's 
shady trees; and so favorable was the impression then made, 
that it was determined that a covered church of some kind 
should be procured by the following Sunday, if the reverend 
gentleman would repeat his visit. A large tent, twenty-five by 
seventy feet, was erected, with a cross upon the apex to desig- 
nate the object of the structure, and a temporary pulpit fitted 
up. Mr. Morgan, however, was in some manner detained, but a 
Presbyterian minister, the Rev. Mr. Walsworth, who had inci- 
dentally visited Oakland, being present in the congregation, 
was invited to officiate. The same week the tent and appur- 
tenances were sold to the Presbyterians. 

In December, 1854, the Right Rev. Bishop Kip celebrated di- 
vine service in a room that had been prepared for the purj)ose. 
In January, 1855, the missionary. Rev. E. W. Syle arrived, and 
became acting Rector of the emloryo jDarish, The first commun- 
ion service was celebrated on Sunday, February 4, when eleven 
communed with the Rector. On March 5 of the same year, the 
parish was regularly incorporated and trustees elected, but it 
was not until the 8th of August following that a constitution and 
by-laws were finally adopted. During die same month a rented 
room was fitted up as a church, with benches, at a cost of $150, 
current expenses being met by collections every Sunday. 
. The Rev. Mr. Syle resigned January, 1856, and from that 
time lay services were regularly held. Bishop Kip occasionally 
officiating. 

In July, 1856, the Rev. James W. Caj)en became Rector, and 
continued in charge until 1857, when he resigned. 

On March 1st, 1858, the present Rector entered upon the dis- 
charge of his duties. 

A lot was purchased in 1860 for the sum of $450, and a church 
edifice erected thereon at a cost of $2,600, which has since been 
enlarged twice. The church was consecrated to divine service

hundred and fifty.

Presbyterian (East Oakland). 

Location, northeast corner of East Fourteenth Street and Fif- 
teenth Avenue. Kev. T. M. Dawson, Pastor; residence, Tubbs' 
Hotel. 

This church was organized February 17, 1861, with ten mem- 
bers. The Eev. George Pierson was the first Pastor, and offici- 
ated until 1870. From that time the Kev. Oliver Hemstreet, 
Rev. E. H. Camp, and others, acted as stated supplies until 
December, 1872, when the present Pastor, in response to a unan- 
imous call from the congregation, entered upon the discharge of 
his duties, and was installed Pastor February 13, 1873. Num- 
ber of communicants, August, 1873, fifty-one. 

The church edifice was erected in the Summer of 1861, at a 
cost of $4,700. The lot on which it stands is seventy-five by 
one hundred and fifty feet, and was donated to the society by 
James B. Larue, Esq. In 1867, the building was improved at 
an additional exj)ense of $1,800, and a bell for the edifice pur- 
chased for the sum of $1,000.

Rev. L. Hamilton, Pastor; residence, west side of Jackson near 
Twelfth Street. 

This church was organized February 28, 1869, and is the only 
one of a similar character in California. The Pastor of this con- 
gregation officiated for several years as Pastor of the First Pres- 
byterian Church in this city, but for opinions expressed by him 
he was tried before the Presbytery, and subsequently before the 
Synod, resulting in his being deposed by those bodies February 
24, 1869. A large portion of Mr. Hamilton's congregation, who 
were opposed to this decision of the Presbytery and Synod, de- 
termined upon organizing another societ}'^, and secured Bray ton 
Hall as a temporary place of worship, 'where services were held 
until the Spring of 1870, when the edifice now occupied by 
the congregation was erected at a cost, including lot, of about 
$22,500. Number of communicants, June, 1873, about eighty.

Church of the Immaculate Conception (Roman Catholic). 

Location, west side of Jefferson Street, between Seventh and 
Eighth. Rev. Michael King, Pastor ; Rev. Michael Mulville, 
Assistant. Pastoral residence adjoining the church. 

Twenty years ago a room in a jorivate house served as a place 
of worship for the Catholics of Oakland and nearly the whole of 
the present County of Alameda. A priest from the Mission of 
San Jose occasionally made a visit to celebrate mass and admin- 
ister the sacraments, and even these occasional visits had to be 
omitted during the rainy season, owing to the bad roads. The 
first church, a building of the most modest description, was 
erected in 1853 through the exertions of a few of the congrega- 
tion, and for some time was the only Catholic place of worship 
in the whole of Alameda and Contra Costa counties, with the ex- 
ception of the old Mission. Subsequent additions, made by the 
Rev. Fathers Croke and King, increased the size of this edifice 
until it was capable of holding a congregation of several hun- 
dreds, but this, too, has become entirely inadequate to the needs 
of the population of Oakland although three new i^arishes have 
been formed in the county. In 1869, Father King determined 
to erect a church on a scale commensurate with the promised im- 
portance of this city. Plans accordingly were prej^ared for a 
building surpassing in dimensions anything in the State, though 
only with the intention of erecting a part of it at first, a design 
Avhich has been carried out in the present structure. The foun- 
dations were laid in that year, but various causes retarded any

further progi-ess until May, 1871, when the superstructure was 
commenced, and pushed Tigorouslv forward since. Although 
not quite completed, the church was dedicated on the 23d of 
June, 1872. The ceremony of dedication was performed by the 
Archbishop Alemany. The sermon was preached by Father 
Gallagher, to whom, nearly twenty years ago, the Catholics of 
Oakland were in a great measure indebted for their first place 
of worship. 

The new church is of wood, with heavy brick foundations, and 
built in the strongest manner, with double walls firmly braced 
together. The nave roof principals are suj)ported by posts twelve 
inches square and fifty-four feet long, to which the principals of 
the aisle roofs are secured at a height of about thirty-four feet, 
and these at the outside rest on posts eight inches square and 
strengthened by side buttresses. The style of the building is 
early Gothic, and it consists of a nave, side aisles, chancel, and 
two front towers. The latter are to be surmounted by sjiires at 
a future period, but even in their joresent state, their height (one 
hundred and four feet to the top of the pinnacles) and size give a 
highly imposing appearance to the front. The roof is open; on 
the inside the spaces between the principals and tie-beams, and 
the latter and the arch-braces in both nave and aisle roofs, being 
filled in with light and elegant open-work traeeiy. The ceiling is 
paneled and i:)ainted blue, with stars; the woodwork being paint- 
ed white with flower patterns in tertiary colors. At the sides, the 
arch-braces under the roof timbers are terminated in carved niches, 
intended to receive statues of the twelve apostles. The cornices 
are also of wood, the arches between the nave and aisles and 
the chancel-arch being, with the walls and ceiling under the organ 
gallery, the only plaster work in the building. The organ gallery 
jDrojects only a few feet into the church, thus allowing its full di- 
mensions to be better appreciated. The "o^indows are filled with 
rich stained glass, the heads being ornamented with emblematic 
figures, and the large front window being quite a fine specimen 
of artistic design. Much of the interior work is yet unfinished, 
but that which has been done gives promise of an excellent finish 
when completed. It is not the least satisfactory matter in con- 
nection with this building that it is entirely the product of Cali- 
fornia design and workmanship. Nearly all the men employed 
on it resided at Oakland ; the stained glass was manufactured by 
Mallon & Boyle, of San Francisco, and the fresco painting execut- 
ed by S. Buzzi, of the same city. The entire cost of this build- 
ing is about 833,000, and it may be safely set down as one of the 
cheapest erections of its kind in California. It will seat about 
twelve hundred and fifty j^ersons.

reficliecl Oakland, several benevolent ladies of this city met and 
organized a sewing society, for the relief of the sufferers. After 
this object was accomplished they concluded to organize under 
the name of the Ladies' Relief Society, for the purpose of aiding 
the destitute of their own city, especially women and children, 
and also to jDrovide a home for aged females. 

During the past year Elijah Bigelow, Esq., donated to the so- 
ciety'- a lot on Franklin Street, between Fourteenth and Fif- 
teenth, valued at $7,000, which he subsequently exchanged for 
three and a half acres of land near Temescal Creek and directly 
on the line of the Berkeley Eailroad. From the proceeds of a fair 
held under the ausj^icesof the association and contributions, they 
have already collected a building fund of $3,500, and propose 
as soon as practicable to commence the erection of a home, for 
which the j^lans have already been prepared. In the meantime 
they have rented a building on Webster Street near Seventeenth, 
for a temporary home until their own edifice is completed . At 
present there are twenty-two inmates . 

The society is governed by a Board of Managers, consisting of 
twenty-four ladies . 

Officers. — Mrs. A. Dam, President ; Mrs. Greorge C. Potter, 
Vice-President; Mrs. L. P. Fisher, Recording Secretary; Mrs.

Oakland Benevolent Society. — Organized June 7, 1869. The 
objects of this society are to relieve the sick and destitute, and 
to secure employment for the unemployed. 

All who become subscribers are members, and are entitled to 
refer apjDlicants to the Treasurer for relief. 

Assistance is rendered not only with great caution, but with 
great secrecy and delicacy, when necessary. No degradation 
consequently will follow such relief; nor will it be the means of 
undermining one right principle, or of enfeebling one well-di- 
rected impulse. 

The annual meeting is held on the first Monday of June, at 
which time an Executive Committee, consisting of fifteen gentle- 
men and fifteen ladies, are elected, who hold office for the term 
of one year. 

Quarterly meetings of the Executive Committee are held on 
the second Monday of June, September, December, and March, 
at which time the Board of Trustees is requii-ed to make a full 
and detailed report of the condition and all the transactions of 
the society during the preceding quarter.

STENCIL PLATES 

SAN PRAiraisoo, CAL. 



STENCIL PLATES, when handsomely executed, present the cheapest and best mode of 
advertising that can be adopted. This is the experience of all who use them. 

STEXCIL PLATES OF EVERY PATTERN cut at this establishment m a style un- 
equaled by any other workmen in California. 

Merchants and others are invited to call and examine specimens mproof of the above 
assertion. 

Orders from abroad, as well as those given in person, promptly executed and forwarded. 
Parties sending orders by letter are particularly requested to wkite flatnly and give the 

EXACT SPACE THEY WISH THE LETTERS TO OCCUPY. 

By close application and superior execution of work during an experience of thirteen 
years, Mr. TRUWORTHY has extended his business to its present proportions. His present 
facilities for rapid and tasteful execution of all work in his line are far superior to those of 
any other in this State or In the Union. 

Having purchased all of the late John HaO's StencU Tools, Plates and Impressions, and 
everything pertaining to his business, I am prepared to furnish his customers with fac- 
similes of his work.

shall cause the amount thereof to be paid by the Marshal of said 
city to the parties entitled to the same. Said judgment shall 
separately state the amount of damages to which each party is 
entitled. If the appellants, or either of them, recover no more 
in said County Court than the amount allowed or assesssd to 
him by said Council, together with ten per cent, additional there- 
to, he shall pay the costs of the appeal; but if he or they recover 
a sum more than ten per cent, beyond the amount so allowed,

sessment of damages by said Council; and provided, further, that 
if any occupant or owner of such lands shall fail, after being no- 
tified as aforesaid, to appear and claim damages, he shall be 
deemed to have waived his right of appeal to said County Court. 
The provisions of an Act entitled An Act to regulate proceedings 
in civil cases in the Courts of Justice of this State, and the Acts 
amendatory thereof and supplementary thereto, shall be applica- 
able, so far as the same are not inconsistent with this Act. There 
shall be the same right to an appeal from any such judgment 
rendered in said County Court as if the action had been origin- 
ally brought therein. When the amount of damages shall be 
finally ascertained and determined, the said Council shall order 
the City Marshal to pay the amount thereof, to the parties enti- 
tled thereto, and upon such payment, or the tender thereof, the 
said Marshal shall proceed and open said street. All streets that

proposals, but may, within said five days after first publication of 
notice of said award, elect to take said work, and enter into a 
written contract to do the whole work at the price at which the

gence to completion, it shall be the duty of the City Marshal to 
enter into a contract with the original bidder to whom the con-

the first publication of the notice of said award, to enter into the 
the contract, then the City Council shall again publish, for said 
five days, and pursue the steps required by this section the same 
as in the first instance. If the owners who may have taken said 
contract do not complete the same within the time limited in the 
contract, or within such further time as the said City Council 
may give them, the said Marshal shall report such delinquency 
to the City Council, who may relet the unfinished portion of said 
work, after having pursued the formalities of this section as 
stated aforesaid. All such contractors shall, at the time of the 
execution of the contract, also execute a bond to the satisfaction 
of the Mayor of said city, with two or more sureties, payable to 
the City of Oakland, in such sums as the said Mayor shall deem 
adequate, conditioned for the faithful performance of the con- 
tract, and the sureties shall justify before any officer competent 
to administer an oath, in double the amount mentioned in said 
bond, over and above all statutory exemptions. Any person suf- 
fering damages by reason of the breach of said contract, may 
sue on such bond in his own name. It shall be the duty of the 
Marshall to collect from the contractors, before the contract is 
signed by him, the cost of publication of the notice required 
under the proceedings prescribed in this Act. — [Amendment,

resolution ordering the work to be done. — [Amendment, March 
29, 1870.] 

Sec. 12. At any time after the period of thirty-five days from

lien against the j) remises assessed, and to order such premises to 
be sold on execution, as in other cases of the sale of real estate 
by the process of said Courts ; and on appeal, the appellate

lated by the provisions of this Act, and also, when not in conflict

tions of lots liable to be assessed for work done under the provis- 
ions of this Act, to improve forthwith any of the work mentioned 
in section two of this Act, in front of the property of which he is 
the owner, tenant, or occupant, to the centre of the street, or 
otherwise, as the case may require, specifying in said notice what 
improvement is required. After the expiration of three days, the

owner, tenant, or occupant, under the provisions of this Act, for 
the amount contracted to be paid ; and the certificate of the Mar- 
shal that the work has been properly done, and that the charges 
for the same are reasonable and just, shall be prima facie evi- 
dence of the amount claimed for said work and materials, and of 
the right of the contractor to recover for the same in such action. 

Sec. 15. In addition, and as cumulative to the remedies above 
given, the City Council shall have power, by resolution or ordi- 
nance, to prescribe the penalties that shall be incurred by any 
owner or person liable or neglecting or refusing to make improve- 
ments when required, as provided in section thirteen of this Act, 
which fines and penalties shall be recovered for the use of the 
city by prosecution in the name of The People of the State of 
California, in the court having jurisdiction thereof, may be ap- 
plied, if deemed expedient by the said Council, in payment of 
the expenses of any such improvements, when not otherwise pro- 
vided for.

of lands, lots, or portions of lots, or buildings under claim, or 
exercising acts of ownership over the same, shall be regarded, 
treated, and deemed to be the " owner," (for the purpose of this 
law) according to the intent and meaning of that word as used in 
this Act. And in case of iDro^Derty leased, the possession of the 
tenant or lessee holding and occui^ying under such persons shall

so defined to be the owner shall be personally liable for the pay- 
ment of any charge or assessment lawfully made or assessed upon

thirteen of this Act, either before or after suit brought, together 
with costs, to the contractor or his assigns, or he may redeem

He shall be allowed for his time actually employed in the dis- 
charge of his duties such compensation as shall be just, but not 
to exceed five dollars per day. The sum to which the party so 
employed shall be entitled shall be deemed to be '' incidental ex- 
penses," within the meaning of these words as defined in this 
Act; provided, that the owners of more than one half in frontage 
of the lots and lands fronting on the work proposed to be done 
under this section maj', within forty -eight hours after the 
work has been commenced, apj^oint their own superintendent 
of the work, and provide for his comj)ensation by private agree- 
ment. 

Sec. 26. After a street shall have been paved, planked, or 
macadamized by authority of this Act, the City Council shall 
have power to levy a tax from time to time, as occasion maj' re- 
quire, upon the property fronting ujDon said street, sufficient to 
keep the same in repair. Said tax shall be levied and collected

provements be stayed or prevented by any written or other re- 
monstrance or objection, unless such Council deem proiDcr.* 

Sec. 29. This Act shall take effect and be in force from and 
after its passage. 



* The Act of the Legislature approved December 29th, 1871, amends the road law of 
Alameda County, and provides new regulations for levying and collecting road taxes, 
but the City of Oakland is wholly excluded from the operation of the Act, so that hero- 
after the Supervisors cannot levy any road tax in Oakland at all. An application was 
made for a peremptory writ of mandate to compel the County Treasurer to pay to the Treas- 
urer of the City of Oakland 811,015.44, the amount due Oakland from the taxes for the 
fiscal year 1871-2. Judge McKee, of the Third District Court, decided that it was the 
duty of the County Treasurer to pay the money to the City, but he dismissed the appli- 
cation because no showing, based upon legal evidence, was made in behalf of the City to 
prove the amount due.

AN ACT TO AUTHORIZE THE COUNCIL OF tllE CITY OF OAKLAND TO LAY 
OUT, OPEN, OH IMPROVE STREETS IN SAID CITY, APPROVED JANU- 
ARY 31, 1870. WITH THE AMENDMENT THERETO, APPROVED JANU- 
ARY 16, 1872. 

The People of the State of California, 

represented in Senate and Assembly, do enact as follows : 

Section 1. Whenever a petition shall be presented to the 
Council of the City of Oakland, signed by at least three residents 
and freeholders of said city, each of whom shall be directly inter- 
ested in the property to be affected thereby, asking for the laying 
out, opening, extending, straightening, or widening any street or 
highway in said city, it shall be the duty of the said Council to 
examine into said matter, and if, in the opinion of a majority of 
all the members elected to said Council, to be expressed by a 
resolution to be entered upon their minutes with the names of the 
members voting therefor, the benefits to arise from granting said 
petition, in whole or in part, will exceed the damages and expen- 
ses to be caused thereby, and the convenience of the public will 
thereby be promoted, they may by resolution direct the City En- 
gineer to survey and make a map of the said j)roj)Osed improve- 
ment and of the premises to be affected thereby, a copy of which 
resolution shall forthwith be transmitted by the Clerk of said 
Council to said City Engineer. 

Sec. 2. It shall be the duty of the City Engineer, upon receiv- 
ing such notice, to proceed and survey said proposed imjjrove- 
ment, to make a map thereof, showing the location, boundaries, 
the amount of land necessary to be taken, and the names of the 
owners or possessors thereof, showing the portions owned or pos- 
sessed by each, and to return the same to the Council within ten 
days after the receipt of said resolution by him, unless longer 
time shall be granted by said Council therefor. 

Sec. 3. Upon receiving said map and return from the said 
Engineer, the said Council shall forthwith give notice of not less 
than five days, by publication in not less than two daily news- 
papers, if there be so many j)ublished in said city, of the time 
and place where they will hear all parties desiring to show cause 
against the said improvement. At the time and place designated 
in such notice, or at such subsequent time as the Council may 
adjourn to — but svich adjournment shall not, in the aggregate, ex- 
ceed seven days — the said Council shall proceed with such hear- 
ing. 

Sec. 4. If no objections be made, or if, after hearing the ob- 
jections thereto, the Council shall remain of the opinion that 
such improvement should be made, they shall elect, by ballot, 
three Commissioners, residents and property owners in said city, 
not interested, directly or indirectly, in the proposed improve- 
ment, or in the projoerty to be affected thereby, to assess the 
damages and benefits to be caused by said improvement. With- 
in two days thereafter, said Commissioners shall give notice of 
the time and place where they will proceed to examine the prop-

erty to be affected by such improvement, by an advertisement in 
two newspapers, if there be so many published in said city, such 
time to be not more than three days thereafter ; at the time and 
place named, they shall proceed to examine the land and im- 
provements to be affected by the proj)osed improvement, and 
shall first ascertain the amount of damages to be sustained ; the 
names of the owners of the j)roperty to be damaged, and the 
amount to be paid to each of such owners therefor. They shall 
then assess upon the property to be benefited by such improve- 
ment a sum sufiicient to pay the whole amount of said damages, 
and the fees and expenses of the said Commissioners, and shall 
apiDortion the same among the owners of the several parcels of 
property to be thus benefited, in proj)ortion to the amount of 
benefits to accrue to each.* In making such estimate and ap- 
portionment, they shall take all pertinent testimony that may be 
offered them, and may examine any witnesses that they shall 
deem it necessary or advisable to call, and shall have authority 
to administer oaths to all persons testifying before them. With- 
in twenty-one days after their appointment, unless further time 
be granted by the Council, they shall make a report to said Coun- 
cil of the assessments and awards so made by them, with the names 
and amounts of the persons damaged or benefited asaforesaid. 

Sec. 5. Upon receiving such report, said Council may, if in 
their judgment the said report is legal, and the said assessment 
therein contained is in accordance with law, by ordinance, levy a 
taxf upon the several parcels of property reported as benefited 
by said im]Drovement, for the amounts severally charged against 
each in said report, which tax shall be a lien upon the several 
parcels of property severally, and shall not be removed until said 
tax is paid. Immediately upon levying such tax the City 
Marshal shall serve a notice in writing upon each owner of the 
land so taxed, or his lawful agent ; or in case such owner or 
agent cannot be found, to post such notice in a conspicuous 

'■■•A case was made by C. T. Jaeobos and carried to the Supreme Court, September term, 
1871, which set aside the report of the Commissioners, on the ground that thoy had not 
awarded the damages or assessed the benefits in the manner required by the Act. That 
Court very justly characterized the law as ambiguous: but taking the whole Act together, 
they held that it is necessary to first award to the parties whose property is taken for 
the street, or damaged by its opening, the amount of the damage, irrespective of any 
benefit that may accrue to them, and that the benefit must be separately assessed. In 
other words, that all the damages must be first ascertained and added together, then 
the benefits to each piece of property in the district affected ascertained, and all the 
benefits added together, and then the assessment that each is to pay will be that propor- 
tion of the total damage that the benefit in his particular piece of property bears to the 
whole of the benefits. To illustrate : If the total of the value of the land taken to open 
the street is $10,000, and the property on both sides will be benefited $2000, and A's par- 
ticular lot will be benefited S500, then A pays 500-2,000, or l-lOth of the 110,000. The last 
Commission adopted the method of taking each piece of property separately, and if the 
damage exceeded the benefits, allowed the difference ; and this method was adjudged to 
be erroneous by the Supreme Court.— Compiler. 

tAt the September (1871) term of the County Court of Alameda Co., Judge Nye ren- 
dered a decision in the matter of the application of Geo. C. Potter, to compel the Citv 
Council to pass an ordinance levying a tax for the purpose of widening Broadway, as 
recommended by Commissioners duly appointed under the law. The Court held 
that the acts of the Council, after the appointment of Commissioners, were ministerial, 
and that the parties to whom damages might be awarded could compel the Council by 
mandamus to pass an ordinance levying the tax recommended. A writ was accordingly 
issued and served, but from other reasons, the parties in interest did not insist upon its 
enforcement— Compiler.

contain the name of the owner (if known), a brief description of 
the lands taxed and the amount of tax levied, and that the i)ay- 
ment of the said tax is demanded by the City Treasurer of the 
City of Oakland within ten days from the service of such notice. 
At the exjjiration of ten days from the time of service on each 
of said persons and property so taxed as aforesaid, the said 
Council shall issue to the City Marshal a warrant, to be signed 
by their President and Clerk, under the seal of the city, com- 
manding- him to levy and collect all of the said tax that shall be 
then unpaid, with his fees for collection from the joroperty upon 
which the same is a lien as aforesaid, and shall thereupon deliver 
the same to said Marshal. {Amendment, January 16, 1872.) 

Sec. G. Ujjon receiving said warrant, said Marshal shall pro- 
ceed to collect so much of said tax as is unpaid, by levy upon 
and sale of the several portions of iDrojDerty upon which the said 
unpaid tax is a lien, in the same maimer and with the same au- 
thority as on sales on execution by Sheriffs, and shall return said 
warrant, with his doings thereon, within thirty days after the 
receipt thereof b}' him. If for any reason the whole amount 
thereof shall not be coUectec], said Council may issue, with like 
effect, a subsequent warrant or warrants until all be collected. 

Sec. 7. As soon as money enough for that purpose is re- 
ceived from said tax, said Council shall direct the City Marshal 
to pay or tender to each party to whom damages have been 
awarded, the sums severally due to them, and thereupon to pro- 
ceed forthwith and open said street or other improvement ; and 
the same shall thereupon be deemed ojDen to joublic iise, for 
the purpose and to the extent in the original ordinance pre- 
scribed. If any person or party entitled to damages cannot be 
found by said Marshal, he shall deposit the amount due to them 
in the city treasury, as a special deposit, subject to their order, 
and the same shall be deemed a suiScient payment under this 
Act. The money so deposited shall not be drawn or used for any 
other pupose whatever. 

Sec. 8. All moneys collected under ttiis Act shall be paid 
into the city treasury as a sj)ecial fund, for the pui'poses for 
which they were collected, and shall not be drawn out or used 
for any other purpose whatever. 

Sec. 9. The City Engineer and the Commissioners to be ap- 
pointed, as herein prescribed, shall each have the right to go in 
or upon any j)roperty for the purpose of making the survey and 
examinations above mentioned, or for any other purpose neces- 
sary in the discharge of their duties under this Act. Said Com- 
missioners shall each be entitled to ten dollars for the first day, 
and two dollars for each subsequent day devoted to their duties 
as such Commissioners, and they shall not receive any other fees 
or compensation for such services. 

Sec. 10. All Acts and i^arts of Acts in conflict herewith, so 
far as they conflict herewith, are hereby repealed. 

Sec 11. This Act shall take effect immediately.

ALAMEDA ENCINAL. 

The Alameda Encinal was commenced on the 14th of Septem- 
ber, 1869, by Mr. F. Hess, of the San Francisco Demokrat, a 
resident of Alameda, more to enliven the regular travelers over 
the Alameda Ferry, than with a view to establishing a permanent 
newspaper. The first five numbers were printed in San Fran- 
cisco, and brought over to Alameda by Mr. Hess. It was then 
purchased by Mr. Fred. K. Krauth, its present proprietor, who 
saw in it the nucleus of a permanent institution if conducted dis- 
creetly and economically, and who brought to Alameda press, 
type, and all the paraphernalia of a printing office. His antici- 
pations have been fully realized. The paper is now in its fifth 
year, and has a reputation throughout the State and in the At- 
lantic States, of which its proprietor may well feel proud. It is 
eminently high-toned, and admits into its columns no matter, 
whether advertising or reading, that may not be read by any 
man, woman, or child in the land. This is its j)ride. As an 
advertising medium for first-class family patronage, it has no 
superior in the State.

sum SO delinquent. He shall then proceed to advertise and col-
